Bright & Early ND Cohort

Ready for the next Step?

The Bright & Early ND Quality Rating process is implemented during four cycles, referred to as cohorts. Think of this period as time where you will work with a Coach, learn from other programs, pinpoint your strengths, take training and reach your quality goals! Cohorts are available throughout the year, specific dates and time frames are listed below:

Application Due:
Cohort Starts: 
Cohort Ends: 
Quality Standards Inventory Due: 
December 9th January 1st  September 30th  September 1st 
March 9th April 1st  December 31st  December 1st 
June 9th July 1st  March 31st  March 1st 
September 9th October 1st  June 30th  June 1st 

Programs can apply for Bright & Early ND Cohorts at anytime, but are only reviewed four times per year (March 15th, June 15th, September 15th, December 15th). Upon application review, a member of the Bright & Early ND Team will contact you 2 weeks prior to the start of the cohort to inform you of your application status.
