We are pleased to announce your child care provider has been selected to join the pilot of the state’s new child care quality recognition system, Links to Quality (L2Q).
This system was designed to acknowledge the strengths and hard work child care providers bring to their jobs. Our goal with the pilot program was to gather a representative pool of providers from every segment in Kansas. We had many qualified applicants, but could only accept a few into the pilot. Your provider’s knowledge, experience and insights are important to helping L2Q reach its potential. We need their input to ensure the pilot will meet the needs of all providers, families and children.
Training and Support for Child Care Providers L2Q includes training and supports that recognize your child care provider’s strengths and help them continue to grow. L2Q providers will focus specifically on building their skills within the areas of Program Leadership, Family Partnerships, and Learning and Development.
How Your Child Benefits Your child care provider will use the skills they build in these areas as they nurture your children and make a positive contribution to their health and development. We believe that human brain growth during the first five years of life significantly impacts children’s future success in school and adulthood. Child care providers play an important role in preparing your child for the future.
Connect with Us L2Q was created to connect all Kansas families to the best possible options for child care. Please look at the information packet provided to learn more -about the new system and how it benefits you and your family.
