Virginia Quality is leading the way for quality early care & education for Virginia’s children and families


ln response to the state unification legislation, a new Unified Measurement and Improvement System, called the Virginia Quality Birth to Five System (VQB5), has been developed and approved by the Virginia Board of Education. By fall 2023 all publicly-funded programs will be required to participate. To support the overall transition to VQ85, Virginia Quality is no longer accepting new applications. More information can be found on the Virginia Department of Education VQB5 webpage or email
