Cost of Preschool Quality & Revenue

The Cost of Preschool Quality & Revenue (CPQ&R) calculator, a free Excel-based tool, can help users determine costs and funding sources related to implementing high-quality preschool programs.

In addition to the CPQ&R there is the Cost of Preschool Quality-Mini (CPQ-Mini) and the State Administrative Cost of Quality (SACQ). The CPQ-Mini is a shortened version of the CPQ&R, but provides the same, research-based outputs. The SACQ helps users generate data on the functions and costs of the state infrastructure to implement, monitor and sustain quality of early childhood programs. Learn how New Mexico and Washington State used SACQ. Read more about the SACQ here.

The CPQ&R, CPQ-Mini, and SACQ are free to use after completing the CPQ&R licensing agreement.
