About Quality Care for Children

More than 470,000 of Georgia’s children under the age of six are in the care of someone other than their parents for as much as 10 hours a day. Children’s experiences during this time determine if their brain architecture will provide a strong or a weak foundation for all future learning, behavior and health. It is critical that parents and child care providers have the tools they need to ensure that Georgia’s children are receiving the highest quality of early care and education. But while experts agree that quality early care and education for children is critical, resources supporting care during this crucial developmental stage are severely limited. For over 30 years, Quality Care for Children has worked to ensure that Georgia’s infants and young children are nurtured and educated and, ultimately, find excitement and joy during a lifetime of growing and learning.

Quality Care for Children is the resource for parents, child care providers and community leaders in Georgia seeking information, assistance and support in securing high quality early learning experiences for infants and young children.

We work with parents from across the state to assist them in finding child care. We ensure children statewide are fed nutritious meals through the child care food program. We work with child care providers to help them offer quality care child care.
