Date: Tuesday July 17, 2018
Time: 8:00 AM - 10:00 AM
Location: Conference 1

Most young children are cared for in home-based child care, yet engaging family child care providers in QRIS is challenging. This session will focus on promising strategies, network and provider experiences, and policy issues related to QRIS expectations for providers and organizational support. The National Study of Family Child Care Networks’ findings about network support for providers including help with QRIS, one network’s approach, and a broad state perspective will be presented.
