Early Achievers, Washington’s quality rating and improvement system (QRIS), is for licensed child care providers and helps early learning programs offer high-quality care. Early Achievers:

  • Offers coaching and resources for child care providers to support each child’s learning and development. Research shows this kind of assistance helps providers improve the quality of their programs. And when more young children are ready for school, we all benefit.
  • Connects families to child care and early learning programs with the help of an easy-to-understand rating system.
