When it comes to a child’s early years, quality matters!
Finding child care is an important decision and we want to help you find the best fit for you and your child. All licensed programs are expected to adhere to a set of health and safety standards but quality standards exceed licensing health and safety regulations and can vary from program to program.
Ohio’s Step Up To Quality rating system helps families understand the level of quality in child care programs and compare different programs by using the same set of standards. The rating system also helps child care providers improve and communicate their quality to families.
In addition, if you have a child with special needs, your child care search will not only include finding a safe and quality setting but also ensuring that the caregivers can meet the unique needs of disabled children.
Whatever your family situation, our specialists can help connect you with the local child care information you need to make the right child care choice for you, your child and your family. Here are some additional helpful resources!
