Evaluation of Mississippi child care Quality Stars program: Final report

In May 2014 the Mississippi Department of Human Services, Division of Early Childhood Care and Development (DECCD) contracted with the Frank Porter Graham Child Development Institute (FPG) to evaluate Mississippi's quality rating and improvement system (QRIS), Quality Stars. The goal of the evaluation was to examine the policies, processes, and implementation of Quality Stars, which is a building block 5-level tiered, statewide voluntary system whose stated goal is "to improve and communicate the level of quality in licensed child care and educational settings across the state." Quality Stars was designed to evaluate quality in child care and early education facilities through assessment in five areas: 1) program administration, 2) learning environments, 3) staff development, 4) parent involvement, and 5) evaluation.
