Archived Meeting Resources
January 9, 2023

This session was presented during the BUILD 2022 National Conference.

Quality Rating and Improvement System (QRIS) indicators are often employed as a system-level lever for promoting child health and development in Early Care and Education (ECE). Qualitative content analyses of publicly available QRIS documents from March/April 2020 assessed the extent to which statewide systems embed indicators related to promotion of 1) healthy weight 2) early childhood development and mental health. Results suggest that many statewide systems integrate healthy growth and development into indicators. In this session, we invite state QRIS leaders to discuss our findings and opportunities to enhance equity in promotion of early development and health through ECE quality initiatives.
