Quality Rating System (QRS)

For license-exempt family child care providers, there are three tiers of training to achieve for the Illinois Quality Counts Quality Rating System (QRS). Providers completing Training Tiers receive a QRS Training Tier certificate. Providers caring for Child Care Assistance Program (CCAP) children receive a quality bonus of 10%, 15%, or 20% to the standard payment for CCAP children in care.

Go to www.ilqualitycounts.com/qrs/license-exempt-family-homes to learn more about how to participate or our On-site Program Consultants are available to answer questions and help you in your efforts to improve the quality of your program.
