REL 2015029 Examining changes to Michigan's early childhood quality rating and improvement system (QRIS)
Documenting and improving early childhood program quality is a national priority, leading to a rapid expansion of Quality Rating and Improvement Systems (QRISs). QRISs document and improve the quality of early childhood education programs and provide clear information to families about their child care choices. The current study described how early childhood programs were rated in Michigan's QRIS and examined how alternative approaches to calculating ratings affected the number of programs rated at each quality level. Using extant data from 2,390 early childhood education programs that voluntarily participated in Michigan's QRIS, the study found that programs in Michigan self-rated at low quality (level 1) and high quality (level 5) more often than at moderate quality (levels 2 through 4). The study also found that programs with both a self-rating and an independent observation of quality generally had higher self-ratings than observational ratings. The study used simulated data to compare the distributions of ratings in the original QRIS, the newly revised QRIS with relaxed domain requirements, and an approach that only used programs' overall scores. Findings revealed that in the new relaxed system and the total score approach, programs were rated at higher levels of quality when compared to the original QRIS. Finally, the study examined how small changes to the cutoff scores for the observational measure of quality created a new distribution of ratings for high quality programs. Implications of changes to the calculation systems in QRIS are discussed in terms of program ratings and financial implications for states.

NCEE 20124048 Evaluation of Program for Infant/Toddler Care (PITC): An On-site Training of Caregivers

For report NCEE 2012-4003 Evaluation of Program for Infant/Toddler Care (PITC): An On-site Training of Caregivers http://ies.ed.gov/pubsearch/pubsinfo.asp?pubid=REL20124003

This file contains information from a study that evaluated the impact of an on-site caregiver training intervention, the Program for Infant/Toddler Care (PITC), on child development and childcare program quality.

The PITC intervention approach combines direct caregiver training and on-site coaching or other tailored assistance. This study tested a specific implementation model of PITC, with delivery of 64 hours of training and 40 hours of on-site coaching and support, requiring an average of 14 months for full implementation. The study was implemented over 2007-2010 in six Southern California counties and four Arizona counties. The study sample of 251 childcare programs included 92 childcare centers and 159 licensed family child care homes.

REL 20124003 Evaluation of Program for Infant/Toddler Care (PITC): An On-site Training of Caregivers
In recent decades, the quality of child care for children younger than three years old has been of concern nationally and within the West Region. Among mothers of these children, 59.4 percent were in the labor force as of March 2008 (U.S. Department of Labor 2009). The Early Childhood Longitudinal Study conducted earlier in the decade found that, of children younger than three with working mothers, 38 percent spent 35 hours or more in child care and 17 percent spent 15 to 34 hours in child care (Flanagan and West 2004). The National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) Study of Early Child Care and Youth Development (2003, 2005) found that the quality of child care during a childís first three years was related to their school readiness, expressive language, and receptive language at age three. And 14 percent of child care centers and 12 percent of regulated family child care homes in California were rated good to excellent, based on the environment rating scales quality measures (Kontos et al. 1995; Helburn and Culkin 1995; Peisner-Feinberg 1999).

NCES 2010005 The Children Born in 2001 at Kindergarten Entry: First Findings From the Kindergarten Data Collections of the Early Childhood Longitudinal Study, Birth Cohort (ECLS-B)
Using data from the final two rounds of the ECLS-B, a longitudinal study begun in 2001, this First Look provides a snapshot of the demographic characteristics, reading and mathematics knowledge, fine motor skills, school characteristics, and before- and after-school care arrangements of the cohort at the time they first began kindergarten. Information has been collected from and about these children when they were 9 months old, 2 years old, 4 years old, and at kindergarten entry. This survey provides a comprehensive and reliable data about childrenís early development; their home learning experiences; their experiences in early care and education programs; their health care, nutrition, and physical well-being; and how their early experiences relate to their later development, learning, and success in school.
