Quality Counts is open to any licensed* child care program, public or private, that serves children 0-5 in Sonoma County. Priority is given to programs that serve low-income families, dual-language learners, and/or children with special needs.

* Quality Counts serves non-licensed providers on a limited basis. California State Preschool Programs (CSPP), are automatically enrolled and do not need to apply to Quality Counts. If you are a CSPP program or a non-licensed provider and need to connect with a Quality Counts Coach, please contact Ashley Chavez at achavez@sonoma4cs.org or 707-522-1413 ext. 114.

Applying to Quality Counts

The application period is officially open from January 1st-31st each year. Applications are reviewed and results delivered by the end of February each year. Applications are accepted all year-round and are kept on file for the upcoming February review cycle.
