Early Achievers, Washington’s Quality Rating and Improvement System

September 17th, 2013

by Katrina Brooke

High-quality child care helps children get ready for success in kindergarten and beyond. Yet child care quality varies considerably around Washington.

Early Achievers, Washington’s Quality Rating and Improvement System (QRIS), is Washington’s voluntary program to help licensed child care providers offer high-quality care. Research shows that high-quality child care provides children with the foundation they need for success in school and in life.

What is a quality child care program?

Choosing child care is an important decision. Families deserve to know that their children are in quality care environments that foster a love of learning, promote each child’s unique skills and cultures, and support the development of the whole child.

Early Achievers helps identify programs that have:

  • Nurturing and supportive relationships between adults and children
  • Care and education that meets each student’s individual needs
  • Facilities that are safe, well-organized, and have age-appropriate resources
  • Programs that support the development of the whole child
  • Open communication and genuine engagement with families
  • Meaningful efforts to embrace diversity

The Shyne School is working on being rated now.  As a parent please let me know if you feel we need to improve.  Your feedback is important to us!  director@shyneschool.com
