2018 QRIS National Meeting

422. Reaching Infants and Toddlers: Exploring Strategies to Increase the Quality of Family Child Care

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

Infants and toddlers are frequently cared for in family child care (FCC) settings. Given that FCC providers have a range of capacity, experience, and service quality, systems focused on increasing the quality of infant-toddler care must include robust and targeted strategies for FCC. This session explores multiple strategies linked to QRIS and directly impacting FCC participation in QRIS, being used with diverse populations of providers and families across urban, rural, and suburban settings. 

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

Presenters: Nancy Huerta, Wu Yee Children's Services; Amy Whitehead-Pleaux, Massachusetts Department of Early Education and Care; Pamela Williams, Parent-Child Home Program
