WPS Preschool Program Reaffirms 5-STAR Rating

posted May 29, 2018, 8:02 AM by Lori Manz   [ updated May 29, 2018, 8:05 AM ]

The Ohio Department of Education recently evaluated the Wauseon Primary School Preschool Program as a 5 Star Program, using the Step Up To Quality system. S.U.T.Q. is Ohio’s rating system for learning and development programs. Participating programs can earn a one to five star rating.  

In addition to meeting all standards of a four-star rating, programs with five stars may also:

  • Have lower staff/child ratios.

  • Use child assessment results to plan activities that best support learning and development goals for each child.

  • Share assessment results and create goals for children.

  • Develop plans to support children as they transition to a new classroom or educational setting.

  • Work with other organizations or businesses within the community to support children and their families.

  • Have an active and organized parent volunteer group.

  • Use input from families and community partners’ inform the program’s continuous improvement process.

  • Have accreditation by an approved organization.  

“I am proud of the effort of our preschool staff members that was necessary to renew this 5 star educational preschool rating.” stated Wauseon Superintendent Larry C. Brown. He went on to say, “I would like to personally thank Mr. Young for the leadership he provided in documenting all of the educational / training requirements necessary for this high SUTQ rating.”

Mr. Brown also shared, “We are very fortunate to host this shared program with Fulton County’s Head Start Program at our Primary Building. Many community members do not realize that we are responsible for the special education needs of our students once they reach age 3. This setting is one of the best options for the families in our community where they can learn together with typically developing preschoolers.”

We know that children have approximately 1,892 days from birth until school starts, and every day matters. It is important to us that children develop their self-confidence, social and emotional skills, and a love of learning. Research confirms that the first five years of a child’s life has a direct impact on how children develop emotional well-being, in addition to, learning and social skills.  For these reasons, the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services and the Ohio Department of Education are committed to improving early childhood opportunities for all children in the state.
