An analysis and research-based revision of the Massachusetts child care quality rating and improvement system (QRIS) standards
Many states are working on cross sector participation in QRIS. The WA Department of Early Learning (DEL) conducted a voluntary pilot project with Early Childhood Education and Assistance Program and Head Start providers (ECEAP/Head Start) to determine the best ways to incorporate these preschool programs into Early Achievers. The primary goal of the pilot was to develop a streamlined process for Head Start and ECEAP participation in Early Achievers that builds upon existing practices and monitoring to avoid duplication when possible.
