Links to Quality

Exciting News for Kansas Child Care Providers! The new Kansas Quality Recognition and Improvement System (QRIS), Links to Quality (L2Q), is now available to all licensed child care providers in Kansas. Links to Quality is offered through Child Care Quality Improvement Support Services (CCQIS) and funded by the Kansas Department for Children and Families.

L2Q strives to increase access of quality child care for all Kansas families. The purpose is to design and implement a statewide system that recognizes continuous quality efforts of Early Childhood Care and Education Programs like you. Why be involved in Links to Quality? Because when children have great early learning experiences, they can build the skills they need to reach their potential. When children succeed, families win. Communities win. Kansas wins. 

Best of all – this service is free!
