Children benefit from high quality early care and education.
Montana's Best Beginnings STARS to Quality Program provides child care facilities with the tools and support to create high quality settings.
STARS to Quality is a voluntary system for all child care programs. Programs participating in STARS to Quality work with regional STARS Consultants to assess and improve quality practices. STARS to Quality builds upon the foundation of the state’s Child Care Licensing requirements and provides the opportunity for child care programs to demonstrate achievements that exceed those requirements.
