Subject to the availability of funds, the Department of Early Education and Care is considering an increase in the infant toddler rate.  Should this occur, only child care providers in Massachusetts who are participating by April 13, 2012, in the Quality Rating and Improvement System (QRIS) by having completed and submitted their “final” on-line QRIS Program Manager application, at least at a level 2, will be eligible to receive an increase in the infant toddler rate. 

All providers must be registered in QRIS by August 31, 2012, to ensure future funding. If you have not already done so, register today!   

The QRIS Program Manager (QPM) may be accessed through EEC’s Single Sign-In application, along with all of EEC’s online applications, at Online Applications for Authorized Users - Executive Office of Education - Mass.Gov
