Star Rated Sites Map

Research shows that the quality of child care children receive sets the stage for all future learning. Smart Beginnings Greater Roanoke is the local coordinator for the Virginia Star Quality Initiative (VSQI), a statewide effort to improve the quality of preschools and child care centers by providing each site with professional development training, one-on-one mentoring, funding for quality enhancement, and a star rating. This rating serves as an indicator of the quality of care provided at each center– a valuable resource for parents seeking quality childcare.

The following childcare centers & preschools have voluntarily chosen to participate in the VA Star Quality Initiative in Roanoke. By doing so, these programs are demonstrating their commitment to providing quality early learning experiences for young children in the Roanoke Valley.
