On Tuesday, February 28, 2017, we at the NKCAC Dayton Head Start Center had the privilege of celebrating our 5-Star Rating from Kentucky All STARS with our staff, students, families, and members of the community. As described by http://www.kentuckyallstars.org/, Kentucky All STARS is an expanded five-star quality rating and improvement system serving all early-care and education programs – including childcare centers, Head Start and public preschool – that receive public funding. The unified system is based on Kentucky’s Early Childhood Standards and research-based indicators of quality.
Kentucky All STARS recognizes programs that have made a commitment to continuous quality improvement and provides programs with additional support including training, technical assistance and coaching. The Dayton Head Start Center has worked diligently in our commitment to improvement and, in doing so we have successfully received a 5-Star rating from Kentucky All STARS. A 5-Star rating is the highest rating that you can receive and we are so proud that we can say that we are able to offer such high quality services to the children and families that we serve, because they deserve the very best.
