ExceleRate® Illinois

ExceleRate Illinois is a statewide quality rating and improvement system designed to make continuous quality improvement an everyday priority among early learning and development providers.

The system establishes standards for helping infants, toddlers and preschool age children develop intellectually, physically, socially and emotionally. It provides a framework for early learning and development professionals to identify opportunities for improvement, increase their skills and take steps to make positive changes. ExceleRate offers two websites one for parents and families searching for quality early learning opportunities and a second for providers and programs interested in engaging and working towards a Circle of Quality designation.
