Demand for child care continues to out-pace capacity.
States can assist in enhancing available capacity by integrating DoD standards on inspections and background checks into their Quality Rating and Improvement Systems (QRIS) for child care programs.
Through statewide QRISs, DoD can identify providers eligible for �approved� status (subsidized care) and partner with other providers to help them reach that status.
