Loving Cup Kids Academy Awarded for Quality Program
In recognition of a commitment to quality and an ongoing dedication to the learning and development of children, Loving Cup Kids Academy of Fairview Park has received a Two-Star Step Up to Quality Award from the state of Ohio.
Step Up To Quality is Ohio’s rating system for learning and development programs. Participating programs can earn a one to five-star rating.
Programs with a two-star rating require administrators and teachers to attend 20 hours of specialized training every two years, in addition to the following:
- Hire teachers with higher education qualifications.
- Use self-assessments to improve classroom practice.
- Use the "Ohio’s Early Learning and Development Standards" to create activity plans to support children’s learning.
- Value strong relationships with families.
“Loving Cup Kids Academy of Fairview Park is proud to be a two-star program,” said Jaclyn Kaliszewski, Director of Loving Cup Kids Academy. “We know that children have 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 the first five years of a child’s life have 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.
