Welcome to KidZone!

KidZone Has a Star Three Level Rating through the Illinois Quality Rating System.



The Quality Rating System (QRS) was introduced in July of 2007 by the Illinois Department of Human Services to support child care providers offering high quality care and education to the children of Illinois.


QRS certification is a detailed process. Independent evaluators, using a set of nationally recognized standards, observe in the classrooms and evaluate how the teachers work with the children, how the rooms are set up and what learning materials are available. Director and teacher education and overall administration practices of the center are also reviewed.


What does this Star Award mean to your child? By earning this distinction, your child care program has met specific standards of quality care and will help give your child a good start in learning and in life. If you would like more information on the QRS process, ask the center director or visit www.inccrra.org.
