Star Quality Advisory Team

The Star Quality Advisory Team serves as a compass for Virginia’s Star Quality initiative (Quality Rating and Improvement System).

Virginia’s Star Quality initiative provides quality standards for early learning programs on a five- star scale. It offers a market-based solution to facilitate quality consistency among early childhood programs, support continuous quality improvement in partnership with public and private early education providers, and encourage a continuum of care and education throughout various provider settings, so that all children arrive in kindergarten ready to succeed.
