Firelands Retains 5 Star Rating

posted 10/11/21 -- Firelands Head Start's Five Star Rating has been renewed by Ohio's Step Up to Quality program.

All of LCCAA's directly operated centers have earned the highest rating from Step Up to Quality: five stars.

Ohio created its five-star rating system to recognize and promote early learning and development programs that meet quality standards over and above the minimum health and safety licensing requirements.

Since implementing the program, LCCAA Head Start has consistently maintained the highest ratings, said Director Shauna Matelski, Ed.D.

Step Up To Quality is administered by the Ohio Department of Education and the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services.
