Selecting the right child care provider for your family is a very important decision and there are many things to consider. This site helps you make a more informed choice by showing program information as well as non-compliances and complaints for the past five years. Contact OCCL for a file review to see a facility’s entire licensing history. Here is more information to consider when choosing a child care provider.

Delaware Stars for Early Success is a voluntary quality rating and improvement system for child care providers. Currently, the evaluation system is being revised. New programs may apply to join Stars but they will be unable to advance beyond a star level 2 and existing Stars participants cannot raise their current star level. Once the program revisions are complete and the COVID-19 health crisis ends, programs can ask for verification to determine their star level. Verifications are anticipated to begin during 2021.
