Quality Rated screenshot 1Quality Rated is Georgia’s quality rating and improvement system, which recognizes ECE programs that meet standards higher than minimum child care licensing standards. Quality Rated helps ECE programs commit to quality improvement, and helps parents select higher-quality programs for their children. The program is administered by Bright from the Start: Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning.

ECE programs demonstrating the highest levels of quality receive 3-star ratings. Recently, DECAL staffers asked 3-star Quality Rated providers why other child care programs should choose to become Quality Rated. Check out the Why Should Your Child Care Program Choose to Be Quality Rated?” video to see what these providers had to say.  For more information about Quality Rated, visit www.qualityrated.org.
