From Winning Beginning NY:


QUALITYstarsNY is a comprehensive initiative to ensure that our young children - the 1.5 million New Yorkers under age six - have the opportunity for high quality early learning experiences. Quality rating and improvement systems (QRIS) are designed to evaluate program quality based on universal standards for early childhood settings; communicate program quality to families by assigning them to “star ratings” similar to those used in other consumer ratings; and help programs continually improve quality through targeted supports.



Benefits of QUALITYstarsNY:

• Gives parents information to help them choose the best care for their children

• Sets clear standards and establishes a data system to insure accountability

• Ensures tax dollars are being invested in programs that work

• Creates universal system to assess, improve and communicate the quality of the state’s early childhood programs

• Provides struggling programs with a roadmap and access to support and resources to ensure improvement
