YoungStar for child care providers

What is Youngstar?

YoungStar is Wisconsin’s Child Care Quality Rating & Improvement System, designed to help child care providers improve and succeed. YoungStar Quality Consultants provide on site consultation throughout five counties (Calumet, Green Lake, Outagamie, Waupaca, and Winnebago). 

YoungStar raises the bar for Wisconsin child care providers by supporting and incentivizing them to develop the quality of their child care program, increasing quality care available to Wisconsin children and families. Child care providers who participate in YoungStar are regularly evaluated and rated every two years, or as quality increases.



Child care programs can earn up to 5 stars based on four key categories:

 • Provider’s Education & Training

 • Learning Environment & Curriculum

 • Program’s Professional & Business Practices

 • Children’s Health & Well-Being
