Aligning QRIS and CCR&R goals to support a high quality early learning system

Resource Type: Reports & Papers
Author(s): Build Initiative;
Date Issued: April, 2015
Publisher(s): Build Initiative
Description: As of 2014, nearly every state and territory had established a quality rating and improvement system (QRIS ) or is planning for one. Child Care Resource and Referral agencies (CCR&Rs) play an important part in the implementation of QRIS in most states. Early childhood leaders in numerous states are rethinking the roles of CCR&R and several asked BUILD to help them better understand how states have restructured the role and funding of CCR&Rs to support QRIS implementation. Late in 2014, BUILD conducted a survey of states and augmented this research with interviews with state leaders in five states. This BUILD brief shares the results of that research. We hope it will be useful to state leaders as they think strategically about how best to partner with CCR&Rs and how to use existing resources to support the partnerships in support of their QRIS goals.
