The Top 5 Reasons to Commit to Quality Counts:

Reap the benefits of free marketing

The opportunity to make a public commitment to offering the very best learning environments and experiences for children you care for daily

Has your program made the commitment to quality?

We exist because, like you, we beleive that providing the youngest members of our community with enriched educational environments will help to prepare them for kindergarten—and life—success. As a champion of the children in Spartanburg County, we believe in and appreciate the work you do every day.

We recognize how overwhelming this work can be.

Providing young children with environments where they can engage in meaningful learning and play, guided by educated and well-trained caregivers is purpose driven, hard work.   So, if you’re looking for help to increase the level of quality care and early education in your program, remember that we’re here to offer guidance and support, free training, and quality improvement grants.
