Alternative pathways to quality in family child care quality rating and improvement systems

Description:
Kelton, Talan, and Bloom recently published a study evaluating the validity of Illinois' alternative pathway model for family child care programs. They examined the relationship between three accountability measures frequently used in QRIS to measure quality in family child care programs: accreditation from National Association for Family Child Care (NAFCC), the Family Child Care Environment Rating Scale-Revised Edition (FCCERS-R), and the Business Administration Scale for Family Child Care (BAS). The study compared the average FCCERS-R and BAS scores of NAFCC-accredited family child care programs participating in Illinois' QRS and the likelihood of an accredited program meeting the FCCERS-R and BAS threshold scores set for the alternative pathway.
