What it Means

Any licensed child care in Michigan, that has not started the quality improvement process or has an expired quality level, and is in one of the following licensing statuses, will be in the Maintaining Health and Safety Quality Level.

  • Original
  • Regular
  • 1st Provisional

Tribal child care programs are also eligible to participate. Tribal programs interested in participating can email greatstarttoquality@ecic4kids.org to get started.

Why it’s Important

Providing a healthy and safe environment is the foundation for a high quality child care or Out-of-School Time program.

What’s the Next Step?

Programs interested in moving forward in the quality improvement process must have their program’s Organization Profile registered in MiRegistry. Because staff qualifications and professional development are important considerations in a high quality program, each program staff member working with children must have applied for MiRegistry membership and be connected to the program’s Organization Profile.
