Early Achievers

Early Achievers is Washington’s voluntary, quality rating and improvement system. It gives participating child care and early education professionals free access to coaching, professional development and a tangible way to demonstrate their commitment to providing quality care and education for young children.

Early Achievers was developed with input and support from child care providers across the state. For two years, Washington’s Department of Early Learning (DEL) and Thrive Washington worked with 90 providers in five communities to develop the system. Starting in 2012, DEL is partnering with Child Care Aware Washington and the University of Washington to offer Early Achievers statewide.

Early Achievers rates the quality of child care and early education programs on a scale of 1 to 5. Higher ratings demonstrate a track record of delivering high-quality care. Providers can move up the rating scale by completing milestones and gaining points through an evaluation.
