Gov. Nathan Deal and Bobby Cagle, commissioner of the Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning (DECAL), recently recognized Kid’s Station for being one of the first in the state to enroll in the rating system.
“We were very pleased to see Kid’s Station Christian Learning Center among the first in the state to enroll in Quality Rated,” Cagle said. “With more than 500 centers voluntarily enrolling in only three months, we can see how this program is being enthusiastically embraced by both families and child care professionals across the state.”
Similar to rating systems for other service industries like restaurants and hotels, Quality Rated identifies early care and education programs that meet a set of standards exceeding the state’s minimum licensing requirements. The program launched in January 2012, and more than 500 providers have already enrolled.
