Let’s Go! Recognized Child Care Sites

The Let’s Go! Recognition Program acknowledges all the hard work that is happening in our Child Care programs! Let’s Go! recognizes three levels of accomplishment for implementing our Five Priority Strategies (pdf) and writing them into policy. Achieving these levels of recognition takes time, dedication and support. It is our goal to provide the tools and support needed to help Child Care programs sustain the great work they are doing and be recognized for it!

Bronze Level
Any child care program that:

  • implements all five Let’s Go! priority strategies

Silver Level
Any child care program that:

  • implements all five Let’s Go! priority strategies
  • communicates these changes and practices to families

Gold Level
Any child care program that:

  • implements all five Let’s Go! priority strategies
  • communicates these changes and practices to families
