If you’re just getting started with Stars or want to learn more about how we work, this page is for you.
Star’s role is to coach and support you in your journey to continually improve the quality of your program. We will work with you and your resources at wherever you are in your efforts; however, YOU make the final decisions for your program.
If you are a child care program in good standing with the Office of Child Care Licensing, Children and Adult Care Food Program, and Purchase of Care, you are just a click away from Starting with Stars.
More and more parents report that Star Level ratings influenced their selection of child care.
Programs participating in Stars earn money through Tiered Reimbursement. As a program moves up Star Levels, it can earn more dollars that can be used for supplies and other program improvements.
There are close to 500 programs enrolled in Delaware Stars. You will be included in a community of child care providers that are committed to providing quality care to Delaware’s youngest learners.
