VQB5 Initiative

Meeting Your Child’s Unique Needs

Virginia’s early childhood system must ensure that all children have quality teaching and learning experiences that meet their unique needs. To do this, Virginia has developed the Unified Virginia Quality Birth-to-Five System (VQB5), which recognizes the impact of every classroom, provides feedback to every educator, and supports all publicly funded birth-to-five programs to improve.

What is VQB5?

VQB5 is a measurement and improvement system that focuses on the quality of all publicly-funded birth-five classrooms and supports families in choosing 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.
