Choosing Quality Care

Choosing the Right Setting for Your Child

We are here to help you find the best fit based on your child’s needs and your preferences.

Quality child care environments are nurturing and safe. These environments provide opportunities and materials for children of all ages to learn through play. This is essential to your child’s development.

Accurate information about child development and appropriate expectations for children’s behavior at every age help parents see their children in a positive light and promote their healthy development.

We are here to assist you in learning about the different attributes of a nurturing environment that meets all your child’s needs. This is a free service available to all families.

Ensuring Quality Teacher-Child Interactions

Some School Readiness child care providers are scored on the quality of their care using the Classroom Assessment Scoring System (CLASS). 

Learn more about CLASS scoring by viewing this CLASS one-pager for parents.
