Track 2: Quality Rating Improvement System (QRIS)

The Quality Rating & Improvement System (QRIS) Track provides enhanced support, higher participation stipends and onsite coaching to help programs improve their overall program quality, environment, and teacher-child interactions. Programs in QRIS will also receive support and recognition of their commitment to quality care through rating publications.

LICENSED PROGRAMS

Participating licensed programs can choose to participate in Track 1 or 2. Within each track, QCC provides a step-by-step level of support based on an assessment of the child care program’s needs and readiness for quality improvement.

Track 1: Quality Improvement (QI)

QI is an easy way to start quality improvement work. In this track, programs receive professional development training and resources, educational support and incentives, help developing a site improvement plan, and participation stipends. 

ALTERNATIVE NON-LICENSED PROGRAMS

Participating alternative non-licensed programs participate in Track 1 to receive professional development training and resources, educational support and incentives, help developing a site improvement plan, and participation stipends.
