Look for Quality Rated When Choosing Child Care

Posted on 06-21-2017 | Corinne Bundy



In 2015, Kids R Kids #23 Watkinsville achieved a Quality Rated certification from DECAL, the Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning. There are over 20 childcare centers within a seven mile radius of Kids R Kids. We are proud that we are one of the few in this area who are Quality Rated.

Quality Rated is operated by the Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning (DECAL), the department of state government responsible for meeting the early education and child care needs of Georgia’s children and families. Among other things, DECAL also administers the lottery funded Georgia’s Pre-K Program and licenses/oversees the state’s child care programs.

Any child care program participating in Georgia’s Quality Rated has agreed to meet standards that exceed the state’s licensing requirements and is committed to improving the quality of care it provides to children.

Based on the results of a rigorous application process, programs are awarded one star, two stars, or three stars. A star rating – regardless if it is one, two or three stars – indicates a higher quality program. Stars are awarded based on a combination of points gathered from an independent observation and a portfolio that demonstrates that the program meets standards above and beyond what licensing requires. The number of stars simply reflects scores above certain levels.

The Quality Rated system was designed so that any parent selecting a program participating in Quality Rated can feel confident that they are enrolling their child in a program that is committed to continuous quality improvement and higher quality standards.
