Quality Matters

Parents know that the person who cares for their child many hours a week makes a difference in their child’s life and well-being. Both common sense and research tell us that children’s brains are growing most quickly during their first years of life, and that their experiences during these critical early years lay the foundation for the rest of their lives. As a result, child care affects the way that children think, learn and behave.

Quality child care makes a difference.

Quality Rating Improvement Systems have an impact.
