A Quality Rating Improvement System (QRIS) is used to assess, improve and communicate the levels of quality in an early learning program based upon continuous growth according to quality standards. Quality standards include:
*Licensed and regulated by the State
*Staff who have specialized early education degrees and participate in ongoing professional development
*Low adult to child rations (appropriate group size)
*Developmentally appropriate curriculum, informed by valid and reliable screening and observation tools.
The higher the quality standards, the higher the rating for the program!
Programs are rated using a five-tier system identified by the following categories:
High Quality Plus = Gold
High Quality = Gold
Quality = Silver
Basic Quality = Bronze
Emerging Quality = Bronze
Participation is voluntary and demonstrates a program's commitment to quality.
