Help with Listen Feature Help with Listen Feature

Many states have implemented a statewide QRIS to assess the level of quality in early childhood care and education programs. The National Child Care Information and Technical Assistance Center provides this online QRIS Resource Guide to help states and communities better understand key issues and decision points during the planning and implementation of such a system. It contains an explanation and history of QRIS, descriptions of the key components of a QRIS, and state-specific resources.
