Participating in a high-quality early learning experience can make a world of difference for a young child. First 5 San Francisco is at the forefront in developing programs that not only increase opportunities for all children in San Francisco to attend early education programs, but also improve the quality of the programs that they attend. In partnership with the California Department of Education, First 5 is developing and testing a new Quality Rating and Improvement System (QRIS) to monitor the quality of the city’s child care centers and family child care homes and support them in achieving the highest standards of quality.
