YMCA’s Child Development Center Earns Star Rating

Darke County, OHIO (August 1, 2017) The YMCA’s Child Development Center in Versailles has recently become star rated under Ohio’s Step Up to Quality rating system. Both Darke County locations of the Y’s Child Development Centers have now achieved one star and are continuing to work toward additional stars.

Step Up to Quality (SUTQ) is a voluntary quality rating and improvement system administered by the Ohio Department of Education and the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services. SUTQ recognizes and promotes learning and development programs that meet quality program standards that exceed licensing health and safety regulations. The program standards are based on national research identifying standards which lead to improved outcomes for children.

Standards include: low child to staff ratios, higher staff education, on–going specialized staff training, and utilization of a research-based curriculum that aligns to Ohio’s Early Learning and Development Standards.
Families and children attending our program will benefit from: highly trained teachers; emphasis on the development of school readiness skills; assurance that the program is committed to continuous improvement; and a focus on family engagement.

“Our Child Development Center works hard to provide our children and families with a quality early learning experience and it is wonderful to see our hard work recognized through this Step Up To Quality Star Rating,” said Child Development Center Site Director Patty Gehret.

For more information on our Child Development Centers, stop by either our Greenville location at 301 Wagner Avenue, our Versailles location at 10242 Versailles-Southeastern Rd, or call 548-3777 or 526-4488 to schedule a tour.
