Bal Swan Holds a Four Star Rating from Qualista
What is a Qualistar Rating?
Developed by 150 early childhood experts, the Qualistar Rating measures quality in licensed early learning programs that serve children birth through kindergarten age. This four star rating system (with four being the highest rating) outlines the strengths and weaknesses of the program and provides a detailed plan for continuous quality improvement.
Trained observers, who spend several hours in each classroom, collect information on five different quality components. All of the points that programs earn in each of these quality components are added together to arrive at a Qualistar Rating.
In the Qualistar Rating process, programs are evaluated on five different quality components including:
· Learning Environment
· Family Partnerships
· Training and Education
· Adult-to-Child Ratios and Group Size
Qualistar Early Learning is the result of an innovative merger in 2004 of two of Colorado’s non-profit leaders in early education – Educare Colorado and the Colorado Office of Resource and Referral Agencies (CORRA).
Educare along with many community leaders created what is known today as the Qualistar Rating, which measures the quality of child care and preschool programs across the state.
