ACCREDITATION: Delaware STARS - 5 STARS
April 2016 - April 2019
Delaware Stars for Early Success is a Quality Rating and Improvement System (QRIS), which is a method used to assess, improve and communicate the level of quality in early care and education and school-age settings. It establishes quality standards for programs and provides technical assistance and support to programs involved in Stars as they engage in quality improvement efforts. Delaware Stars is designed as a voluntary system that expects programs to work on improving quality by moving up the Star Levels. Delaware Stars for Early Success is a five level system, with “5” being the highest rating. With each higher Star Level, a program is required to meet increasingly higher quality standards.
