Data from the National Survey of Early Care and Education shows that a significant portion of young children are in home-based settings, yet most home-based providers are not included in our systems-building frameworks. In this workshop, you'll learn about New Mexico's strategies for including license-exempt homes in their quality improvement system and hear research findings from the Arizona Kith and Kin Project and policy considerations from an equity and national perspective on including home-based providers. The facilitators will also help participants analyze their existing support systems and opportunities for improvement.
