En Español

BrightStars, Rhode Island’s Tiered Quality Rating and Improvement system, assists families in finding care and recognizes and supports quality in early care and education programs.

Application Materials for School-Age Programs

School-age (k-5) programs must complete an application  to participate in BrightStars. Programs should indicate their desired star rating on the application; this can be determined by reviewing the BrightStars School-Age Child Care (K-5) Quality Framework; support is also available to determine your star rating by contacting BrightStars staff. BrightStars will review each application and will work with child care programs to help them achieve their desired star rating. Programs should also review our Information and Policies for School-Age Programs to learn more about the application and rating process.
