What is YoungStar?
YoungStar is Wisconsin's child care quality rating and improvement system. We give parents the tools and information they need to raise happy, healthy kids. And, we help preschools, home-based programs, learning centers, and other child care providers give children safe, nurturing places to grow.
How do we do it?
- By objectively measuring child care quality. We rate thousands
of child care providers, awarding up to five stars for
the best quality of care.
- By giving parents an easy way to compare their local child care options and find the programs that match their family's lifestyle, budget, and special needs.
- By supporting providers with tools and training to deliver high-quality care
- By setting a consistent standard for child care quality
