This new line item proposed by the Governor for Early Education Provider Quality Investments supports an increase in reimbursement rates paid to early education and care providers. Reimbursement rates for transportation would also be increased for the first time since 2006.

The Department of Early Education and Care reimburses providers for providing education and care for children who receive child care subsidies from the state. Rates, which are well below federal recommendations currently, increase by the same percentage for all providers who qualify. New rate increases might only be awarded to providers at QRIS level 2 or higher. QRIS standardizes quality measures and uses a level system to evaluate providers. Providers begin at level 1 and then reach higher levels as they adopt improved quality standards. For more information, see the QRIS site. The new rates paid to providers support increased salaries, benefits and professional development opportunities for early education teachers.

This investment also includes an earmark of up to $17.6 million for the transportation of children to and from care which could increase the round trip rate paid to providers by around 50 percent compared to 2006 (the last time rates were increased). The increase would go towards driver salaries and training; gas, maintenance, equipment and insurance costs; and would also provide funding to add an adult monitor to increase safety.
