Default Help me please! Reaching for the stars Program has me so overwhelmmed

I need some advice and guidance when it comes to obtaining two stars through the reaching for the stars program. It seems impossible. Do you have to be accredited for 2 stars? My DHS worker is fairly new and seems almost as lost as I am.

If you have participated in it , Can you give me a play by play of what you did? The accredidation part is the main thing that has me nervous.
Thank you so much!

What state are you in? Each state has a different take on their QRIS....

Sorry, I didnt realize that. I am In Oklahoma. I have a list of all of the requirements ...but accreditation process (if I need it) scares me. The paperwork isn't clear on the accreditation part.

I took a quick look and based on what I'm reading, you don't have to be accredited to be a 2 star program. My understanding is that you can either be accredited OR you can meet all the criteria the state lists for a 2 star program.

I felt overwhelm until I uploaded my info. I got 3 out of 5 stars, my goal was 2. My state just had a contest, first 250 to submit and be approved was awarded $500. I submit on the 4th and got my check on Friday 21st.
Those that already submitted and approved automatically got a check.
