Your child will spend tons of time with their first teacher before they ever step foot in a classroom: you. With that amazing role comes big responsibility. QSSB offers invaluable resources to help you provide high quality early education experiences while your kid is home — from ways to make playtime more educational to tips on how to turn your home into an unbelievable early learning environment.

QSSB currently has over 100 participating early care and education sites throughout the County

The early childhood educators that work at these participating sites, including family child care homes, private centers and state preschools, are choosing to grow their quality. Working in early care, they understand the importance of the first five years of a child’s life and the long-term impact quality early learning has.

At the start of 2017, over 120 early child care educators attended orientation sessions to learn more about what it means to be a participant in San Bernardino County’s first Quality Rating and Improvement System (QRIS), Quality Start San Bernardino (QSSB). The educators represented licensed family child care homes, centers and state preschools passionate about providing the best care to the children and families they serve. This group is the first of many to be enrolled in the quality building program’s five-year plan.

Four partners, Child Care Resource Center (CCRC), First 5 San Bernardino, San Bernardino County Superintendent of Schools (SBCSS) and California State University, San Bernardino (CSUSB), are responsible for the design, development and implementation of the Quality Rating and Improvement System here in the County.
