Reach Quality Recognition Program Standards with CCEI
Participation in Quality Rating and Improvement System (QRIS) programs is a voluntary initiative and standards are designed to exceed state regulations and provide high-quality, effective child care. A key incentive in participating in QRIS programs, aside from providing children with better early education experiences, is local and statewide recognition of child care program achievements. Community and financial awards, technical assistance and scholarships for professional development are sometimes awarded according to an achievement-based point system. In turn, these incentives affect the attainment of quality indicators and other measurements. CCEI offers over 30 hours of intermediate and advanced level online child care training coursework that meet quality recognition program standards for continuing education.
