Star Rated Programs

The addition of the Quality Counts signage in our community has been a plus. It has created a conversation that I think will only continue to improve. The conversations are positive and student-centered. We are definitely on the right track. 

Ron Garner, PhD

Superintendent , Spartanburg School District One

Similar to ratings used for restaurants, Quality Counts uses a 5 star scale to communicate the level of quality in child care programs to provide parents with a tool for choosing quality child care.

 

Star ratings are based on five quality standards:

  • Children’s learning environment
  • Staff qualifications
  • Number of teachers and children per classroom
  • Program administration
  • Family engagement
