Early Achievers Prepares Children for Success in Schools
Science shows us that the early years of a child’s life are the most important when it comes to preparing our children for success in school and beyond. Children who receive high-quality child care and early learning opportunities achieve better emotional, developmental, and academic outcomes.
You know your child needs high-quality child care in order to grow and thrive during these most important early years. But how do you measure quality? How can you be sure a provider you are interested in is as committed to quality child care as you are? Check to see if the provider is participating in Early Achievers, Washington’s framework for integrating high-quality practices into licensed child care programs across the state.
Early Achievers is Washington’s Quality Rating and Improvement System (QRIS) designed to help parents and families find quality care environments for their children and assist child care providers in supporting every child’s learning and development.
Ask your child care provider if they participate in Early Achievers. You can also Visit Child Care Check to locate child care providers who participate in Early Achievers.
