Alaska’s Quality Recognition & Improvement System (QRIS)

A Critical Window of Opportunity

The environment in which young children play and learn is critical to their readiness for school and life. Learn & Grow, Alaska’s Quality Recognition and Improvement System (QRIS), identifies standards of quality for early childhood education programs and supports them in obtaining quality improvement. Learn & Grow also provides families, communities, and policy makers tools to understand high-quality early childhood education and its effect on healthy brains and setting up a secure future for Alaska.
