The ABC Child Care Quality Rating and Improvement System's mission is to make quality child care more available and affordable to parents, and to increase the quality of care for all children in the state. The ABC Quality Rating and Improvement System helps providers voluntarily achieve higher standards of quality in caring for the children they serve making higher quality services available to more families. There are 5 levels of quality: A+, A, B+, B, and C.

Level   Level A
Can your program measure up?
Level   Level B
Beyond the basics.
