Quality child care is best for Kansas

Ensuring the safety of all children

State agencies and child care programs can check the background of a provider who has worked in Kansas.


Kansas Quality Network (KQN) is a website offered by the Kansas Department for Children and Families that directs child care providers, families and communities to resources available for the advancement, support and recognition of continuous quality improvement efforts in child care in Kansas. KQN provides information on child care assistance and other services available to children and families, including eligibility requirements for early childhood education programs. KQN supports parents with information about how to choose child care for their families that goes beyond health and safety and assists child care providers in enhancing their professional skills by providing professional development and other opportunities that will help provide better early-learning experiences for children.
