A Foundation for Quality Improvement Systems: State Licensing, Preschool, and QRIS

Program quality standards reflect the structure and practices of programs to provide safe, legal, and effective services to children. This document was developed to help inform States about current program quality standards found in licensing regulations, state-funded preschool program standards, and quality rating and improvement systems (QRIS). This examination of current standards that apply to varied types of early care and education programs can be used to guide development and improvement of those standards.
