Quality Rating System (QRS)
Be Recognized and Rewarded for What You Already Embrace - Quality Child Care!
Quality Rating System (QRS) assists Illinois child care programs in providing quality care for children and their families. This initiative is funded by the Illinois Department of Human Services (IDHS).
QRS offers progressive star training tiers for license- exempt providers. Specific quality criteria must be met to achieve each tier. When a child care provider has met the required criteria for a tier, they will be recognized for their achievement and will receive an additional 5% to 20% above the usual Child Care Assistance Program (CCAP) rate for their area.
