Young Hearts Academy is a Quality Rated Childcare Program
The care and education of your child is one of the most important decisions you will make.
What is Bright from the Start?
Parents and families need an independent, trustworthy resource to help them find high-quality child care, preschool, and Pre-K programs. That’s where Georgia’s Quality Rating comes in.
Quality Rated gives parents and families greater confidence in their child care choice because independent, credentialed experts in early education have assessed whether programs follow best practices, such as:
Employing qualified and well-trained teachers
Providing a safe, healthy and caring environment
Implementing individualized instruction
Offering a curriculum that prepares children for kindergarten
A focus on both active learning and social-emotional development
Providing a low teacher-student ratio
A PARENT’S ROLE IN QUALITY CHILD CARE IS VITAL:
Inquire about the qualifications and experience of child care staff, as well as staff turnover.
Know the facility’s policies and procedures.
Communicate directly with caregivers.
Visit and observe the facility.
Participate in special activities, meetings, and conferences.
Talk to your child about their daily experiences in child care.
Arrange alternate care for their child when they are sick.
Familiarize yourself with the child care standards used to license the child care facility.
