Quality Rating and Improvement System

Quality Rating and Improvement System

We are building a Tiered Quality Rating and Improvement System known as “FOCUS on Young Children’s Learning”. Early learning providers are measured on a number of key quality indicators and receive a rating of their overall quality that will be available to parents and the public. Early learning providers across: home visiting; early intervention, childcare, PreK; preschool special education; and Head Start receive support and coaching to improve quality over time. FOCUS has at its core a Continuous Quality Improvement (CQI) process, where providers access the quality of their practices and make necessary changes with support from coaches.
