Contracted Slots Pilot program evaluation: Final report

Resource Type: Reports & Papers
Author(s): Weber, Roberta B. (Bobbie); Grobe, Deana;
Date Issued: November, 2015
Publisher(s): Oregon Child Care Research Partnership
Description: Since 2000 DHS had contracted with providers of Oregon Head Start Prekindergarten (OHSPK) programs to ensure stable care in programs of documented quality to children whose parents met both Head Start and ERDC eligibility requirements. In the fall of 2012 the Contracted Slots program was expanded to include Oregon Programs of Quality (OPQ) and the Contracted Slots policies were revised (See Appendix B). The quality of OPQ programs had been documented. OPQ was a forerunner of Oregon's Quality Rating and Improvement System (QRIS) that enables child care and education programs to document the level of quality they offer. The expansion of contracting to include community-based programs of documented quality (OPQ programs) provided families' increased access to continuous care in quality programs. The three key goals for the three-year pilot were: -Children have access to continuous quality care and education; -Families have continuity of quality child care and education to support their employment, and -Providers have stable funding in serving children and families experiencing low incomes in programs of documented quality.
