Sunrise Childcare Awarded QRS Level Rating!

Iowa’s Quality Rating System (QRS) is a voluntary child care rating system for child development homes, licensed child care centers and preschools, and Child care programs that are operated by school districts.  The QRS was developed to raise the quality of child care in Iowa, to increase the number of children in high-quality child care settings, and to educate parents about quality in child care.  QRS has five levels indicated by the number of stars on a provider’s certificate.  We have made a commitment to providing quality childcare and education to the children in our community. Thank you to the parents and the community for all of your support you have given us.
