A Framework for Validating Child Care Quality Improvement Standards

A Framework for Validating Child Care Quality Improvement Standards

Last month, LeCroy & Milligan Associates’ CEO, Michel Lahti, co-authored an article in the Early Childhood Research Quarterly. Recently, child care quality rating and improvement systems have become popular in many states as a policy tool to improve the quality of child care programs and settings with the goal of improving outcomes in areas such as school readiness. The article provides a framework for validating child care quality ratings and improvement systems (QRIS) so that policy-makers, researchers, and program leaders can demonstrate the link between higher-quality child care and improved school readiness as well as other outcomes.
