Being an educator, I find myself constantly looking at ways to turn any moment into a teaching moment for Izzy. Let me give you a little background first. In case you don’t already know, I’m a Birth Through Five Education Major. I am also certified in ages 3-5 special education with this degree. I later attained my certifications for k-5th general education and special education. I have taught in brick and mortar public and private schools. I have also taught virtually, in an online school.
Because of my experience in Birth Through Five education, I know that finding great early education programs and quality child care for your kids is so important. Have you heard of Quality Rated? Probably not, am I right? It’s a Georgia service, a state-certified child care rating system. It’s basically a free online search tool that you should look into because it takes the guessing and mystery out of finding quality child care in Georgia!
The child care programs with star ratings agree to meet the standards that exceed the licensing requirements. This means any rated program is of higher quality, than those without.
You can use Quality Rated to find to head start programs, daycare programs, childcare programs and pre k programs. Click here and scroll to the bottom for details on these programs.
Beyond everything else I just discussed, here are some reasons to check out the Quality Rated tool.
1. Safety – You can access each child care program’s safety and inspection reports.
2. Your Commute – When clicking the “search along a route” option, you can easily find a childcare program that best fits your commute.
3. Continued Quality – Quality Rated child care programs are committed to continually improving their centers and the education they offer.
Still need some help when finding the right program for your child? Take a look at this checklist!
