The 2012 Early Childhood Risk and Reach in Louisianareport is designed as a tool to be used by all early childhood stakeholders, governmental and nongovernmental, to better inform policy and funding decisions that impact the distribution of critical resources.
NARA provides technical assistance, training and consultation to states in all matters related to licensing of child care facilities. The quality of a QRIS system is directly impacted by the quality of a state’s regulatory system: its rules, monitoring and enforcement.
Early Childhood Policy Research has supported states through facilitating planning and designing of standards, assessments, monitoring procedures, financial incentives and outreach. They have also provided comparative information and cost estimations.
NITCCI has developed a QRIS Learning Community with 8 states to provide a forum for discussion, technical assistance, and development of resources specific to infant and toddler quality issues. They have worked with states on the planning of an Infant Toddler Specialist Network to assist the statewide implementation of QRIS by building collaborative technical assistance models to incorporate the quality specialist, child care health consultants and the infant toddler specialists for statewide QRIS implementation.
