In 2021, 44 QIS included indicators for centers and 43 included indicators for FCCs. QIS most commonly had about four to five indicator categories (see chart below). The most common types of indicators for center-based programs and FCCs were related to environment (38 QIS) and staff qualifications and training (37 QIS; see the table below).

Note: staff compensation and benefits was not asked for FCC indicators because it refers to benefits that are particular to centers alone.  

The table below depicts the number of QIS that include each type of indicator in their standards for both centers and FCCs. You can sort each column by clicking the icon to the right of the corresponding column headers.
