System Update
Connecting MiRegistry and Great Start to Quality STARS allows providers to enter required staff training and qualification information in one place, where it can be accessed by Child Care Licensing and Great Start to Quality. Here is some information related to these system connections that are important to know so action can be taken by your program.
Individual Membership
Now is the time to request a MiRegistry Membership. Membership in MiRegistry is required for Individuals connected to Organizations (licensed programs) who participate in Great Start to Quality. Membership is free and allows Individuals to submit education, credentials and track their professional development. Once an Individual indicates employment with their licensed program, the licensed program will verify the employment and the individual will be connected to the licensed program's Organization Profile. This will link to the program's Great Start to Quality Self-Assessment Survey when the program is ready to be star rated. 

See the steps for becoming a member for more information on the documents you will need to submit for review.

Transcripts and Diplomas
Official transcripts (mailed directly to MiRegistry from the college, University, or vocational school) will be required for Great Start to Quality, which is a change from prior requirements. When a program is ready to become star rated in the upgraded system, official transcripts must be submitted and reviewed by MiRegistry in order to earn credit in Great Start to Quality.

Once a transcript is submitted to MiRegistry, it will stay connected to an Individual's account for the life of the account, no matter where the Individual is employed and can be viewed by licensing and Great Start to Quality into the future. 

An Individual's diploma(s) can also be submitted for review by MiRegistry staff and credit will be given for the applicable degree without a credit breakdown.
