Programs can achieve a Star rating that reflects quality above and beyond licensing requirements for out-of-school time (OST) programs. All rated programs are able to share with families their commitment to improving the quality of their program. The process of continuous quality improvement is a journey. Great Start to Quality provides tools and resources for programs to do so in a self-reflective, supportive way. Once a program achieves a Star rating, the information is posted for families. They can better identify which programs are high-quality and best meet the needs of their family. See more benefits for Programs and Families.
