The Kansas Quality Rating Improvement System (KQRIS) is a five star quality rating system for center-based and family child care programs. Hillcrest Christian Early Learning Center receives a comprehensive assessment, on-site technical assistance and access to an improvement grant by participating in this program. In addition, our teachers are eligible for college scholarships. The KQRIS assessment tool is based on five areas of quality: Learning Environment, Family Partnerships, Training and Education, Child Ratios and Group Size and NAEYC Accreditation. Our center currently has a five star rating.
