Equity and Transparency in Enrollment

Quality Start Los Angeles (QSLA) has made a commitment to ensure equity across the LA County early learning system. As a result, QSLA has analyzed available data to identify high priority communities in Los Angeles County where QSLA will focus its enrollment efforts. QSLA’s goal is to ensure that its resources and services are focused on the early learning programs and communities that have traditionally received an uneven distribution of, or limited access to, programmatic supports and services.

Although providers in communities not identified as highest priority will have the potential to enroll in QSLA, we are offering priority access to providers in the designated areas first. Remaining slots will be offered to applicants based on the other identified enrollment criteria. To learn more about the criteria we use for enrolling new sites to QSLA, click here
