Celebrating our 10th Anniversary


Better Beginnings is celebrating 10 years of service to providers and families. Our goals and objectives are:

  • To improve the quality of child care with resources and training
  • To increase public awareness of the importance of early childhood education in child brain development
  • More children than ever prepared for school when they
    start kindergarten

High-quality child care helps children develop life skills and builds the foundation of a child’s education. Children’s early learning experiences determine their future success in school and in life.

Learn more about us and find star-rated child care and early childhood educators on our website.



Our 10-Year Report

More than 1,340 child care providers voluntarily participate in the Better Beginnings Program.

More than one-half of those providers have reached the highest level available – three stars!

More than one-half of our providers stayed open, under strict pandemic procedures, when the Covid-19 outbreak reached Arkansas.


Thank you, Better Beginnings Child Care Providers!

Your work helps give Arkansas children a better start in life.
