STARS REQUIREMENT:
 
The new foundational quality standards states that STARS hours will be calculated for the fiscal year rather than the calendar year.  This began on July 1, 2020.  Child care providers are still required to have 10 STARS hours.
The new timeline for STARS hours is:
 

January 1, 2019 – June 30, 2020 – 10 STARS hours required of child care providers
July 1, 2020 – June 30, 2021 – 10 STARS hours required of child care providers

For more information on training requirements please refer to these DCYF resources: Training Requirements Chart and the WAC FAQ section. Requirements are also listed on page 36 of the current edition of the Foundational Quality Standards for Early Learning Programs Guidebook.
