Fayette Progressive Preschool — located at the Starting Gate Building in Washington C.H. — was recently awarded a Five Star Rating through the Ohio Department of Education’s Step Up to Quality Rating system.
Step Up To Quality (SUTQ) is a five–star quality rating and improvement process 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 Step Up To Quality Program Standards include four domains: Learning and Development, Administrative and Leadership Practices, Staff Qualifications and Professional Development, and Family and Community Partnerships. After a thorough review of paperwork and an on-site visit, Fayette Progressive Preschool was awarded the maximum award of five stars.
Fayette Progressive Preschool, a part of the Fayette County Board of Developmental Disabilities, prides itself on the community it is a part of and would like to thank its community partners, local school districts and other members of the county Board of DD for their continued support and opportunities the school is able to offer students based on these relationships. Fayette Progressive’s state evaluator commented how wonderful it was that the community was so involved in the school’s program and that it is lucky to have such support.
Fayette Progressive Preschool offers preschool programming to students with disabilities as well as typically developing peer models, ages 3 to 5. The program allows students to grow and learn in a safe and comfortable preschool environment where they are encouraged to explore the world around them and learn from each other.
