Western Nevada College’s Child Development Center has received a 4-star designation from the Silver State Stars Quality Rating & Improvement System.
Silver State Stars’ QRIS provides parents with the information to make informed decisions when deciding a child care program for their children.
Achieving a 4-star rating means that WNC’s Child Development Center “exceeds high quality standards,” said WNC CDC Director Andrea Doran.
“I am especially proud of the staff of the CDC for improving from our initial rating to our current 4-star rating,” Doran said. “Their hard work and dedication to quality early care and education is evidenced by this achievement.”
Doran said that the CDC has worked diligently toward improving its services.
“Each classroom prepared for this over the last 18 months and were able to make appropriate and worthwhile improvements toward best practice,” Doran said. “Participating in this process, in conjunction with our accreditation practices, ensures that we will continue to improve for the children and families in our community. Thank you to all of my amazing staff; you are the reason we reached this goal.”
Silver State Stars Quality Rating & Improvement System is a voluntary program open to all child care centers in Nevada. The QRIS is a systemic approach to improve and assess the level of quality in child care centers.
