Engaging family child care providers in licensing and quality improvement efforts is challenging for states and localities. This session will discuss four approaches to addressing these issues: a national effort to create Peer Learning Groups and resources; a statewide collaborative framework to increase participation in QRIS; a local coordinated approach based on a “Referral Continuum”; and a network community-building model. Participants will have opportunities to share their own experiences.
