St. John Christian Childcare Center is a part of the Early Achievers program through the Washington state Department of Early Learning. Early Achievers is Washington's quality rating improvement system (QRIS), and helps our center offer a high quality of care to our students and families. Through Early Achievers we are offered coaching and other resources to support each child's learning and development, and demonstrate our high level of commitment to provide quality care and education for young children.
For several years our center was selected by the Department of Early Learning to be a quality rating improvement system (QRIS) early adopter. What does this mean? It means we are one of the licensed childcare facilities in Washington State who met all eligibility requirements and demonstrated a committment to providing high-quality care for the children and families we serve. Congratulations to St. John's staff for receiving high ratings on all your hard work for the Early Adopters Program! For more information about this, click on the two links below:
