YoungStar in Wisconsin: Analysis of Data as of July 2014. Executive Summary: Key Findings and Analysis
Wisconsin Council on Children and Families
YoungStar is a five-star quality rating system for child care providers based on education, learning environment, business methods, and practices around child health and well-being. Through this rating system, the state is addressing several key issues in Wisconsin's child care system. The rating system will: (1) Improve the overall quality of child care; (2) Create a clear, understandable tool to help parents choose quality child care; (3) Create incentives for providers to improve services, particularly for low-income children; (4) Link the quality of child care providers to Wisconsin Shares payments; and (5) Help prevent fraud in the Wisconsin Shares system. This summary highlights key findings and provides analysis based on data as of the end of July 2014 from a report tracking the progress of Wisconsin's YoungStar program.
