Children learn so much in their first five years. Quality child care and preschool helps children learn, grow and develop. The foundation is set for children to be successful in school, work and life when they have a safe place to learn, explore their world and build relationships.
Great Start to Quality is Michigan's rating system that evaluates the quality of child care and preschool providers. As a Michigan family, you can use Great Start to Quality as a tool to help you look up and compare early childhood programs to find the best care for your child. On a scale of one- to five-stars, child care and preschool providers are scored in different areas, and those scores are combined to give them their star rating.
