Fixing Fraud in Wisconsin Shares
The Department of Children and Families is aggressively working to stop fraudulent abuses of the Wisconsin Shares program. The Wisconsin Shares program has been scammed by criminals who cheat Wisconsin taxpayers and give hard-working parents and child care providers a bad name.
YoungStar links Wisconsin Shares reimbursement to quality. Higher quality providers receive higher reimbursement than lower quality providers. This system of quality rating enables the Department of Children and Families to identify those quality providers, share that information with parents, and reward providers for exceeding minimum expectations. Quality ratings help Wisconsin child care providers to all be on a positive path to providing the best care for our children.
