Kentucky Had an App for That
Kentucky had two portals available for assistance in locating STARS-rated programs:
- The Division of Child Care’s Kentucky Integrated Child Care System (“KICCS” Portal) helped parents find STARS-rated centers in their area through a search by county or helped parents find their child’s current center’s STARS rating.
- Kids Matter was a smart phone app for finding child care in Kentucky. Users were able to search for a subsidy eligibility specialist or a child care program, and the app included a child care checklist, an “ask the experts” feature, and links to additional resources.
