QUALITYstarsNY operates an extensive and comprehensive data system that tracks every investment in money, time, and effort to ensure accountability and provide a greater understanding of what it takes to generate and sustain high quality early childhood education for young children.
Programs participating in QUALITYstarsNY utilize their rating report to set goals in their QIP and access resources necessary to assist with meeting those goals. Through the QIP system, QUALITYstarsNY can track the progress programs are making towards quality improvement. Additionally, as programs are re-rated at least every three years, QUALITYstarsNY captures information on program progress and analyzes data to measure increases in Star Rating or rating points earned.
QUALITYstarsNY also collaborates with The Aspire Registry for New York’s Early Childhood Workforce to collect and monitor workforce data such as staff employment history, education and ongoing professional development.
