Supporting Babies Through QRIS: Inclusion of Infant and Toddler Quality Standards

This document presents a national review of states’ and jurisdictions’ Quality Rating and Improvement Systems (QRIS) that have been implemented statewide, focusing on how these systems can include standards that explicitly address the needs of infants and toddlers. This publication is a “living document” because states’ and jurisdictions’ QRIS differ in terms of level of completion, and many are undergoing continuous revisions as a result of pre- or post-implementation evaluation efforts.
