About Us

Welcome to the Quality Counts Career Center for Early Care and Education funded by The Children’s Trust as part of Miami-Dade County’s quality improvement system. The Career Center is operated by the Children’s Forum, Inc., who also operates the Child Care WAGE$® Florida salary supplement program in Miami-Dade and the statewide T.E.A.C.H. Early Childhood® Scholarship program.

The Career Center serves as a valuable resource for early learning programs and educators through providing professional development and classroom-based coaching, educational scholarships, wage stipends, and a training registry. The Career Center is committed to providing these services because we know those who work directly with children daily hold the keys to quality experiences for young children.
