What is YoungStar?

YoungStar is Wisconsin's child care quality rating and improvement system. We give parents tools and information to raise happy, healthy kids. We help preschools and child care providers give children safe, nurturing places to grow. How do we do it?

  • By objectively measuring child care quality from one to five stars for thousands of child care providers.
  • By giving parents an easy way to find programs that match their family's lifestyle, budget, and disability.
  • By supporting providers with tools and training to deliver high quality care.
  • By setting a consistent standard for child care quality.

What is Regulated Child Care?

Regulated child care provides a foundation for safe child care settings by conducting background checks, regular inspections and complaint investigations. Types of regulated child care include:

  • Certified Care (3 or fewer children under age 7 in care)
  • Licensed Family Child Care (up to 8 children under age 7)
  • Licensed Group Child Care (9 or more children under age 7)
  • Day Camp (seasonal program for 4 or more children ages 3 & up)

* An enforcement action is a sanction or penalty that the Department of Children and Families may impose to gain a child care center's compliance with administrative rule. An enforcement action only pertains to licensed care -- not to certified care. On the date indicated above, an enforcement action was issued by the Department to address a violation of one or more administrative rules. The center can dispute an enforcement action through an appeal. If there is an appeal, this is also indicated above. If no decision is listed for an appealed action, contact the appropriate Department Regional Office for more information. The Department may resolve an enforcement action through a stipulation agreement with the licensee. The Department can also issue a warning letter which is not an enforcement action and does not have appeal rights.

** Any violations included in an enforcement action are both displayed next to the enforcement action and displayed in the listing of violations. Forfeitures are displayed next to their action type, and forfeiture amounts are identified next to each violation.

*** During a partial review of rule requirements on the date indicated, no rule violations were observed.
