The Provider Cost of Quality Calculator (PCQC) allows you to model the annual cost and revenue for full-time care at the early childhood program level, demonstrating whether there is a gap between the cost of providing quality services and the revenue available to support a program. Knowing the size of the gap at different quality levels for various provider types can inform the design of financial supports and incentives.
The PCQC is useful to states and territories that want to understand the cost of operating a child care home or center in different areas (e.g., rural and urban). You can create multiple scenarios representing different providers, manage and share those scenarios, and save and print reports.
