VQB5 is a measurement and improvement system that focuses on the quality of all publicly-funded birth-five classrooms and supports families to choose quality programming across different program types. VQB5 sets shared expectations for measuring quality and supporting teachers for all birth to five programs. Through VQB5, teachers and leaders will receive the feedback and support they need to help young children learn.

By fall 2023, all publicly-funded programs will be required to participate with ratings shared publicly in fall 2024. Early childhood programs that do not receive any public funds will have the option to participate.

Publicly funded sites include:
• Public School preschools (VPI, ECSE, Title I)
• Head Start and Early Head Start programs
• Approved Subsidy Vendors (Child Care Centers, Family Day Homes, Local Child Care Assistance)
• CCAMPIS programs
• VECF’s Mixed Delivery programs
• Military Child Care Fee Assistance programs
