The information provided through Quality Start Riverside County tier rating is for referral use only and is not meant to endorse or recommend any specific programs. It is important to visit the program and schedule an interview with the program’s early childhood professionals before making your final decision as to which program will be the best fit for your family. It is also a good idea to ask the program for references and contact the references. Before you visit a specific program, you should check the licensing history of the program through California Community Care Licensing https://www.cdss.ca.gov/inforesources/community-care-licensing/facility-search-welcome. Only you can decide if the quality of care is right for you and your child.
Ratings are measured on a 5-star scale. All of the ratings show that the program is committed to quality and is going above and beyond what is required to be a licensed child care provider in California. If a program’s current tier indicates “Rating in Progress”, the program is participating in Quality Start Riverside County, but has yet to receive their formal rating. If a program’s current tier indicates “Quality Improvement Participant”, the program does not participate in the formal rating process, but continues to participate in training and receive coaching through Quality Start Riverside County.
