Raising Quality! program. When parents choose a Raising Quality! partner, they are choosing a provider that has shown a dedication to providing quality child care and education, and
are committed to making their programs even better by seeking continuing education and professional development. To help families find providers near them, the Raising Quality! website now offers a "find quality child care near you" interactive map tool.
