We focus on high-quality early learning experiences that build the foundation for skills children need to thrive in school and in life. To accomplish this, we offer support to strengthen Michigan’s providers of early care and education so they can continuously improve the services and support they provide young children, their families, and the community.

Most young children in Michigan, ages birth-12, are in licensed programs and it is important for these experiences to be the very best. Quality licensed programs help children learn, grow and develop.
Information for Providers & Educators
By creating a safe, nurturing place for children to learn, explore and build relationships, quality programs set the foundation for children to be successful in school, work and life.
Information for Approved Assessors
Great Start to Quality offers those individuals who work with early childhood programs and providers in Michigan opportunities to be directly involved.
