Our center is Five-Star Rated!

Step Up To Quality is a voluntary, quality rating system for early care and education programs in Ohio. Step Up To Quality means
Fewer children per classroom
     Smaller group sizes
     More trained teachers
      A better early education experience for your child


What Does This Mean For You and Your Child?

As a Step Up To Quality Five Star Rated Program, Kids-Play provides a program where:

The administrator and teachers have higher education qualifications.
     The administrator and 50% of lead teachers have an associate’s degree or equivalent. These qualifications benefit your child’s development and learning.
   The administrator and teachers complete 20 hours of specialized training every two years.
      The administrator and teaching staff are committed to expanding their knowledge and skills to better support your child’s development and learning.
   Each year the lead teacher uses results from a classroom self-assessment to develop a plan to improve their classroom.
  The program evaluates the classrooms and teacher/child interactions to make sure the environment supports children where they are in their development. Programs can then make the changes to better support your child’s growth and learning.
   The program builds relationships with families.
  Teachers and families work together to create goals for your child and share information about your child’s progress. The program offers at least one event to involve families in their child’s learning and development.
Step Up To Quality programs are only eligible for a Star Rating if they have not had any serious risk licensing non-compliances at their last licensing visit. If this program were to have a serious risk noncompliance, their rating would be either suspended or removed based on the non-compliance
