STARS for KIDS NOW
The STARS for KIDS NOW program is Kentucky's voluntary quality rating improvement system for Licensed Type I, Type II and Certified Family Child Care Homes. Programs are rated using a one- to four-STAR level system.
The STARS for KIDS NOW program is part of the KIDS NOW Initiative (Kentucky Invests in Developing Success NOW!) and is administered by the Cabinet for Health and Family Services.
STARS participants are encouraged to review the STARS for KIDS NOW Operations Manual for guidance and understanding of the operational policies, procedures and regulations governing the STARS program.
To increase public awareness of the STARS for KIDS NOW program, the Division of Child Care produced a video of several programs participating in STARS for KIDS NOW. This is Kentucky's voluntary quality rating system for child care providers.
Every day in a child’s life makes a difference, so choose child care carefully. Look for the STARS.
