As a new small family childcare provider, Niccole was solely focused on providing a safe environment where kids could have healthy food and plenty of free play. Then she received a flyer in the mail about a program for improving childcare quality (IMPACT/QRIS). “Not even knowing what it was fully about, I promptly replied and forgot about it,” Niccole said. “I am so thankful that my [QRIS] coach, April, followed up with me, because this program has totally sparked ideas and sent me into a new direction!”
