The Foundation of Quality Care in Idaho
The IdahoSTARS project is a voluntary program that provides training in child development, education, health, safety and assessment of child care facilities based on national quality standards. It was established to increase parents’ access to affordable and inclusive child care.
Idaho AEYC is a proud partner of the IdahoSTARS project with the University of Idaho Center on Disabilities and Human Development (CDHD). This project is funded through the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare (DHW).
Through IdahoSTARS, you will find child care licensing support, Idaho Child Care Program, Steps to Quality, and other professional development. This system is designed to increase the quality of child care and early education programs by providing opportunities to those who care for and teach young children to improve their skills and professional practice.
