Early Achievers / Quality Rating and Improvement System
Early Achievers works in partnership with the Department of Early Learning, Child Care Aware of Washington and the University of Washington. Child Care & Family Services manages Washington State’s Quality Rating and Improvement System for Southwest Washington. A key strategy of the Statewide Early Learning Plan, Early Achievers seeks to improve the quality of child care and early learning programs. This is a voluntary program where participants receive training, coaching, resources and support.
There is no cost to participate. Early Achievers gives providers access to coaching and professional development opportunities. Early Achievers also offers support and resources to help early learning professionals, both family home providers and centers, improve the quality of their care.
