Parent Aware: Minnesota’s Quality Rating and Improvement System

Parent Aware’s Star Ratings improve, support and celebrate the strengths of child care and early education programs.

Seek a Rating
Parents are asking for star ratings to help them identify child care/early education providers who understand the latest best practices in early learning.

Prepare for a Rating
The ratings will be expanding statewide over the next three years. 96 percent of Minnesotans support star ratings. Parent Aware is here to help you respond. Child care providers/early educators say the program works!
