Bright & Early ND is North Dakota's Quality Rating and Improvement System (QRIS) designed to empower early learning professionals to build upon and improve the quality of care they provide to children birth to five.

Like the early learning professionals who participate in Bright & Early ND, we are driven by the desire to continuously evaluate and improve the quality of the offerings we provide. Our goal is to share the processes, reports, and data on the elements of Bright & Early ND we have evaluated, as well as the ways we have modified the system as a result of these findings.
