Who We Serve

QUALITYstarsNY targets our resources and support to early childhood programs serving New York’s under-resourced communities and families. Currently, QUALITYstarsNY serves nearly 2000 early childhood programs in all settings across all 10 economic development regions of New York State. All regulated programs serving children age 0-5 are eligible to apply to participate, including child care centers, family/group child care, pre-k in both centers and schools, and Head Start/Early Head Start programs.

Participating programs have access to a wide range of resources, supports, and services to help them systematically and intentionally improve and sustain the quality of care and education they provide to young children and their families.

As additional funding becomes available, QUALITYstarsNY will continue to expand participation to ensure that more of New York’s young children and their families have access to high quality early childhood experiences.
