Virginia's Quality Rating and Improvement System

 

 

Virginia's QRIS has a new look, a new name and new quality standards that recognize the key role of early learning in improving child outcomes.

Quality Rating and Improvement Systems (QRIS) exist in most states across the country and are a proven strategy to systematically improve the quality of child care and early learning programs. They were created as a proven strategy method to assess, improve and communicate the level of quality in childcare centers and preschools.  Virginia Quality focuses on continuous quality improvement, recognizes early learning programs commitment to excellence and supports programs with tools and services to achieve top quality. 

The Virginia Quality Levels are a framework for program quality improvement. Each level builds on the one before it and prepares programs for the level that comes next.  Programs progress through the levels at their own pace, based on their current level of quality and which aspects of quality they are ready to demonstrate next.
