Access to high-quality programs is a key goal of the recently reauthorized CCDF. This plenary session will examine access from three perspectives: what we know about families, what we know about program participation in QRIS, and what we know about different data options for measuring and tracking access. These three perspectives will be used to encourage innovations in how state QRIS are planning for and tracking the results of their efforts to improve access to high quality early care and education for all families.
