Early Achievers Quality Rating and Improvement System
The 2015 Washington State Legislature required the Early Childhood Education and Assistance Program (ECEAP) providers and licensed child care providers serving non-school aged children who receive state subsidies participate in Early Achievers. Early Achievers is Washington State’s quality rating and improvement system for early childhood education and child care providers.

In the same bill, WSIPP was directed to examine the relationship between the Early Achievers quality ratings and outcomes for children who participate in state-subsidized early education and child care. A preliminary report is due to the legislature by December 31, 2019, with subsequent reports in 2020, and 2021. A final report including a benefit-cost analysis of Early Achievers is due to the legislature by December 31, 2022.
