Finding Quality Care

Children raising their hand

As parents, we all have a responsibility during the first five years of our child’s life to make sure they have the best care and learning tools to help shape their future. However, finding the right child care for your child can be confusing and stressful. Raising Quality! was created to help parents find high-quality child care and early learning opportunities that will help unlock a lifetime of learning for their young children.

A simple way to find quality rated child care providers in your area is through our program Raising Quality! When you choose a Raising Quality! partner, you’re choosing a provider that has shown they are dedicated to providing quality child care and education. They are committed to making their programs even better by seeking continuing education and professional development. To help families find Raising Quality! partners, look for the Raising Quality! Seal. If you don’t see it, be sure to ask your child care provider if they are a participating partner.

To quickly find Raising Quality! partners in San Joaquin County use our interactive map tool. These partners are participating in Improve and Maximize Programs so All Children Thrive (IMPACT), operated by First 5 San Joaquin or are participating in Quality Rating Improvement System (QRIS) managed by San Joaquin County Office of Education.
