CAPS and Quality Rated
CAPS supports high quality early learning environments through Quality Rated, Georgia’s Quality Rating and Improvement System.
If you are a CAPS provider or intend to be a CAPS provider and have not started the Quality Rated process, please consider doing so now by calling the Quality Rated helpdesk at 855-800-7747 or by visiting QualityRated.decal.ga.gov.
In addition to the benefits enjoyed by all Quality Rated providers, CAPS providers who earn a star rating will receive tiered reimbursement on their CAPS payments. Tiered reimbursement is a quality bonus that increases your total CAPS payment by 10% for one star, 20% for two stars, and 40% for three stars. Families at Quality Rated providers also receive a 15% discount on their family fee.
If you are a family and you would like to find a child care provider in your community that is Quality Rated, please visit www.qualityrated.org or call 1-877-ALL-GA-KIDS.
