2018 QRIS National Meeting

103. Building the Supply of Quality Infant/Toddler Child Care Programs

Date: Monday July 16, 2018
Time: 3:30 PM - 5:00 PM
Location: Harbor Island 2

CCDF funding can increase the supply of services for infants and toddlers, which is a critical task since many programs have been forced to stop serving infants and toddlers due to cost of care and capacity issues. At the same time, we must increase the capacity and quality of these infant/toddler programs. Session participants will learn about Georgia’s strategies, which have included contracts and payment reforms with an intensive quality improvement process, and Alabama’s implementation of a statewide Early Head Start Child Care Partnerships grant in diverse settings. Participants will explore how these strategies could be adapted and implemented in their own context. 

This session made possible through the generous support of the JB & MK Pritzker Family Foundation Children’s Initiative. 

Presenters: Jennie Couture and Pam Stevens, Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning; Nikki Edge, University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences; Jeanetta Green, Alabama Department of Human Resources
