Raising the Bar in Peel

Continuous Quality Enhancement

Raising the Bar in Peel (RTBP) is a continuous quality initiative designed to enhance quality care in child  care and early years programs. Through authentic participation in RTBP, programs are committed to  maintaining Provincial regulatory standards as well as local community standards. 

In cooperation with Affiliated Services for Children and Youth (ASCY), copyright owners of RTB, Peel’s  Adaptation for Raising the Bar emerged and is based on enhancing relationships through: 

  • Lifelong Learning
  • Reflective Practice
  • Mentorship
  • Leadership
  • Collaborative Inquiry

The initiative provides an intentional opportunity for programs to build their professional capacity, and to  enhance their practices and relationships through a reflective, goal and action-oriented model.
