This study found that the key components of the Los Angeles Universal Preschool’s quality support coaching model include: (1) research and evidence-based practices by experienced and committed coaches; (2) support, such as positive and collaborative relationships and observation of instruction with feedback loops; and (3) outcomes associated in the literature with improved quality, such as motivation for improving quality and reflective practice. The model followed some of the best practices of effective coaching models, namely a strong emphasis on the coach-provider relationship and active engagement of providers in developing their own knowledge and practices.
