QRIS National Learning Network

Focused toward states implementing these processes, these webinars do help educate different roles (not simply the state representatives) about QRIS, its benefits and how it is being implemented in different states and with different programs.  

"This website has been developed as a QRIS information clearinghouse. Within our libraries, you will find a variety of resources that will help your state in advocating for Quality Rating and Improvement Systems and that will assist you in your planning and improvement efforts."  - QRIS National Learning Network



Samantha Marshall, M.A.

Samantha is, just like you, excited to make a difference in our community and our world. With a Master of Arts degree in English Literature, you might ask how she found herself building and writing for a website focused on child care. From 1995 through 2001, Samantha started her career working for Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) sponsors which introduced her to the importance of non-profits, community and quality child care. Her experience with Sponsors, State Officials, and Family Child Care Providers left a great and lasting impression. Later in her career and her most recent position at SAGE Publications, an academic publisher, was as a product manager for a new online resource! During this time many of Samantha's passions collided. A love for the written word, children and the proliferation of knowledge as well as a fascination with the resources the internet gives us, building a community for child care on ChildCareInfo.com is the perfect way to make the difference she wanted to. Needless to say, she is very excited to be an active part of creating and building ChildCareInfo.com.
