The awards are achieved through ExceleRate Illinois, the state’s quality recognition and improvement system for early learning and development programs that serve children from birth to age 5.  The programs are ranked by a set of standards that focus on early learning and development and rank the programs on instructional excellence, family services, staff qualifications, professional development, and program administration.  The schools also received a certificate from the Illinois Network of Child Care Resource & Referral Agencies.
