SWFL Stars is a 5-star rating system designed to highlight and enhance the quality of childcare services in our service area, which includes Collier, Glades, Hendry, and Lee counties. It was developed through a great team effort, using a collaborative approach between the Early Learning Coalition of Southwest Florida Quality Services staff members, Program Committee members, and a SWFL Stars Workgroup, which included SWFL childcare providers.
The vision of SWFL Stars is to promote and recognize early learning environments of distinguished quality which will support young children to become lifelong learners.
