2018 QRIS National Meeting

356. Creating Inclusive Child Care for ALL: Engaging Health, Early Intervention, Early Childhood Special Education and Early Care and Education in Data-Driven Strategies

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

Creating equitable opportunities for children with special needs to access child care is a challenge for many states and requires partnership across systems. This session offers state exemplars and strategies and discusses the use of data, including GIS mapping of child care supply and demand, to drive community-led solutions. Participants will engage in facilitated discussion to explore state examples of QRIS and quality improvement efforts as barriers/facilitators to inclusion. 

Presenters: Karen Berman, Ounce of Prevention Fund; Peggy Kemp, Division for Early Childhood; Krista Scott, Child Care Aware of America
