Quality Start OC for Families
Home

​We know that you are your child’s first and most important teacher. Every family and every child has different needs. Choosing the right kinds of early learning experiences for your child is an important decision. QualityStart OC​ can help you be sure that wherever your children spend their days in the first years, they are safe and have opportunities to learn and grow. 

You might choose one or more of these types of early learning experiences for your children:
  • Informal Care and Education (by parents, relatives, nanny, or babysitter)
  • Licensed Family Child Care (early care and education provided in a home setting)
  • Play Groups (mommy and me groups, school district Learning Links, library, and other community programs)
  • Child Care Center or Preschool (day care center, nursery school, preschool, Head Start program, or other prekindergarten program)
