A rating system designed to monitor and improve the early education of Solano County children is now in effect.
The program, known as the Solano Quality Rating and Improvement System (QRIS), was created by The Solano County Office of Education, First 5 Solano and additional community partners, according to a news release.
The system assists pre-kindergarten care providers with implementing standards of quality and informing parents of the elements and outcomes of quality education.
This is achieved through on-site coaching, technical assistance, professional development and observation.
The Solano QRIS also enables providers to offer program incentives and ongoing support to families.
