What is QUALITYstarsNY?
QUALITYstarsNY is New York State’s Quality Rating Improvement System (QRIS). It is designed to improve the quality of all early care and learning programs. All licensed child care programs are eligible to participate in this voluntary rating system, whether they are located in nursery schools, child care centers, Head Start, public schools, or private homes. Each participating child care program receives a star rating (of 1 to 5) that indicates the quality of the child care program, as well as support and consultation to assist with improvement of the child care program.
