This hot topic session will explore the role of QRIS in supporting states’ school readiness approach. After a brief review of the research that links quality standards to positive outcomes for children, participants will explore whether the focus for QRIS in cross-sector programs should shift to school readiness. We will consider the standards that may lead to that outcome and how they could be measured.
