Mercy Cares for Kids in Albany created a video to highlight the importance of investing in high quality early childhood education supports, such as QUALITYstarsNY. In the video, Executive Director Theresa Joslin and teaching staff explain some of the ways they implement high quality practices in their infant and toddler classrooms and what it means to the children and parents they serve. Ms. Joslin also shares the important role QUALITYstarsNY has played in helping their program to adapt to the ever-evolving field of early childhood so they can continue to provide high quality care and education to children and families.

Mercy Cares for Kids is an early childhood program in Albany New York operated in partnership with their local hospital, St. Pete’s Health Partners. The program has been participating with QUALITYstarsNY since 2012.
