Improving Child Care Quality in Virginia: An Evaluation of the Star Quality Initiative

Share
Description:
This study validates the rating system in Virginia's QRIS, the Virginia Star Quality Initiative (VSQI), by examining associations between 71 targeted prekindergarten programs in the VSQI and growth in pre-literacy skills across early childhood. Research questions include: (1) Do programs' ratings relate to children's pre-literacy skills upon school entry?; (2) Do programs' ratings relate to growth in pre-literacy skills from pre-kindergarten to kindergarten?; (3) How do center and child characteristics vary by star rating?
