What is QUALITYstarsNY?

The Future of QUALITYstarsNY

Although we are working diligently to create a 5-Star rating system for early learning programs in New York State, we are not currently publicizing ratings.

Due to a lack of state funding, we are also not able to expand our work with additional early education programs.

Want quality early care and education options NOW? Take Action!

QUALITYstarsNY is a voluntary quality rating and improvement system for all types of early childhood programs. It works to improve the quality of care by assessing the program's learning environment - along with other aspects of how the program functions - and by providing supports for improvement.

What Does this Mean for Families?

Using a 5-star rating scale, QUALITYstarsNY will help families to make better informed decisions about their early education options. By choosing a QUALITYstarsNY program, families will be confident that their child's program is invested in delivering quality early learning experiences. Better yet, parents will know that programs are supported with free resources, like staff training and professional development, to make sure that children get what they need to succeed.
