Colorado Shines Quality Rating & Improvement System (QRIS) is Colorado’s new method to assess, enhance and communicate the level of quality in early education and care for all licensed providers. This system provides standardized criteria for all child care providers in Colorado to be rated for quality, and provides incentives and support to providers who wish to raise the level of quality care available at their facility.
