What is simple and deep in our work to understand and improve quality in early childhood? -- Looking for the active ingredient, becoming a helpful appreciator, and continuing the legacy of Fred Rogers. The QRIS National Meeting is organized by the Build Initiative and attended by over 1,000 early childhood leaders from all 50 states of the country. The work presented in this talk is the combined effort of many organizations, including Pittsburgh Association for the Education of Young Children, University of Pittsburgh School of Education, the Fred Rogers Company, and many more. Special thanks to the Build Initiative for inviting and including our work to be part of the conversation.
