Overview

Self-reported by organization

Idaho AEYC is the professional membership organization for early care and education providers and teachers.  The IdahoSTARS (State Training and Registry System) professional development system is a key Idaho AEYC program in partnership with the Unversity of Idaho Center on Disabilities and Human Development to voluntarily increase the quality of early care and education facilities in Idaho. Since 1998, IdahoSTARS has provided over 4,200 scholarships to providers to increase their professional development. Quality is also improved through incentives that support education, training, mentoring and program assessment.  A new statewide, voluntary Child Care Quality Rating and Improvement System (QRIS) was launched January 1, 2010.

STATEMENT FROM THE Executive Director

"Idaho AEYC is the cornerstone for quality child care in Idaho, and because of our partnerships with other key stakeholders in the state, we have capitalized on opportunities to increase the quality of child care and parent choice in our state. It is important to note, however, that Idaho AEYC does not receive any state funding or tax dollars to run our program, and in order to grow and sustain these important programs we are seeking partnership and funds from other stakeholders. We believe, and can demonstrate, these programs have a direct impact on parent choice and the quality of child care programs in Idaho on a voluntary basis. It is through partnerships with others that we have created this unique system of support of all child care and early education programs in Idaho."
