Qualistar Colorado

Quality child care is of the utmost importance in raising a well-adjusted, sufficiently educated and properly nurtured youngster. When we, as parents, must trust our children to the supervision of others, it is our responsibility to assure that the trusted facility is one held in the highest regard. Until now there have been few formal methods for choosing a child care program based upon a uniform code, but with the new Qualistar Rating™ system in Colorado, parents can compare their options on a 1-4 star scale.

The Qualistar Rating™ system measures performance based upon:

Quality of learning environment
Program’s family partnerships
Training and education of program staff
Adult-to-child ration and classroom group size
National accreditation

Qualistar Colorado, along with network resources, provide FREE child care referrals to parents in two simple ways:

1. Call a trained child care referral specialist: 1.877.338.2273
