"Quality Counts California" 

First 5 California Unveils New Branding and Website

California Quality Rating & Improvement System (QRIS) Consortium has been rebranded as Quality Counts California.  In March 2018, First 5 California (F5CA) and the California Dept. of Education (CDE) released the official logo.

A new Quality Counts California website was unveiled at F5CA’s Child Health, Education, and Care Summit last month which is intended to become a 1-stop shop for parents and families about high-quality early learning and care programs. It is also designed to help providers with support and resources to improve their early learning and care programs.

Here is the link to the new website: https://qualitycountsca.net/.
