It’s our birthday! On July 1, 2014, we officially launched Step Up to Quality, and we’ve been climbing and growing ever since — thanks to you.
Child care providers like you are the foundation of our program, so we are thrilled to celebrate this milestone with our incredible network across the state. We have some fun things planned, including a brand-new toolkit and campaign!
This toolkit can be used to invite parents, kids, your community and other providers to the celebration. We’re all in this together to help Nebraska’s children reach their fullest potential.

We would love to see pictures of your program doing the handprint activity! Just copy and paste the language provided below to your social media channels or use as inspiration for posts in your own words. Be sure to use #HighFiveForQuality and to tag Step Up to Quality on your posts.
If you use Facebook or other social media platforms for your program, we encourage you to promote your participation online! We’ve created a cover photo you can use to identify yourself as a quality-rated provider and have provided a few sample posts for you to use.
Identifying yourself as a Step Up to Quality provider on your website and/or in your newsletter is a great way to share your quality rating. Just copy and paste!
A place to start when working with your local newspaper, radio or TV station.
Participating Step Up to Quality providers will be receiving growth charts for use in their program and to distribute to parents!
