Your Support Team

Our team will help you through the Rating process.

We understand the time and energy it takes to go through the Rating process. We’ll surround you with a team for support along the way.

Licensed child care programs participating in the Full-Rating Pathway are assigned a Parent Aware Quality Coach and Professional Development Advisor (PDA) once they have applied to participate in Parent Aware.

Are you a licensed accredited child care or public school-based prekindergarten program? You may be eligible for the Accelerated Pathway. Visit our Accelerated Pathway FAQs for more information.
