2018 QRIS National Meeting

414. Money: How to Get It and How to Spend It!

Date: Wednesday July 18, 2018
Time: 8:30 AM - 10:30 AM
Location: Conference 2

Securing additional investments for your early childhood system and being ready to maximize QRIS participation is essential work. You have compelling data on the cost of providing quality child care. But what now? How do you use your data to communicate the need for increased investment? And if you’ve secured funding, how do you ensure it’s targeted for the biggest impact? We’ll hear how two Workforce Boards in Texas communicated the cost of providing quality care succinctly and meaningfully. And we’ll hear about the marketing strategies Maryland used to increase provider participation in its QRIS. An interactive activity will facilitate a deeper understanding of the power of messaging. 

This session made possible through the generous support of VIVA Strategy. 

Presenters: Nicole Allen, Workforce Solutions for Tarrant County; Nina Johnson, National Center on Early Childhood Quality Assurance; Rhonda Rakow, ChildCare Group; Brian Siatkowski, Johns Hopkins University, Maryland; Simon Workman, Center for American Progress
