What is QUALITYstarsNY?
QUALITYstarsNY is New York State’s proposed Quality Rating Improvement System (QRIS). It is designed to improve the quality of all early care and learning programs. All licensed 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 program receives a star rating (of 1 to 5) that indicates the quality of the program, as well as support and consultation to assist with improvement of the program.
There is a video explaining QUALITYstarsNY, how parents will be able to use information in this system, and its importance.
