YoungStar Childcare Quality Website

Parents looking for quality daycare are now able to use the YoungStar website to identify accredited childcare providers in their area. YoungStar is a ratings system and website created by the Department of Children and Families, which will rate child care providers on a 5-star level on the basis of educational qualifications of staff; learning environment and curriculum; health and well being of children; and professional business practices. Ratings and detailed explanations will be posted on the YoungStar website. While the ratings process is ongoing, YoungStar already lists high-quality childcare providers as demonstrated by outside accreditations. To learn more about the YoungStar rating system and website, click on the link above.
