Ohio Department of Jobs and Family and Ohio Department of Education is requiring all daycare centers who keep publicly funded children to become star rated by 2020. By the year 2025, in order to keep publicly funded children, the center must be highly rated 3 star, 4 star or 5 star.
In order to become 4 or 5 star rated, you must meet all the requirements of the 3 star rating and then you can earn additional points to meet either 4 or 5 star. A 5 star rating means that a center has exceed all areas of quality which is based on national research identifying standards. Meeting these quality marks leads to improved outcomes for children.
“Being recognized with 5 star rating is an excellent achievement for Camille and All 4 Kids, LLC,” says Jill Badger, Consultant with the Toledo Small Business Development Center and board member at the state level for the Ohio Child Care Resource and Referral Association Board. “The designation means that the center has reached the best quality standards that a daycare can have in the state of Ohio. Camille has worked hard to employ degreed teachers and keep low adult to child rations. The 5 star rating will bring more funding per student enrolled to All 4 Kids. This will provide Camille and her team with the funding to expand their opportunities and resources to provide quality services to their students.”
All 4 Kids, LLC accepts Private Pay, ODJFS and CSB funding and is currently accepting new students.
“Lastly,” says Camille, “I would like to thank Jill Badger, Bill Wersell and Charlie Chambers at the Small Business Development Center for helping me fine tune all areas in my business such as budgeting, accounting, balance sheets, depreciating, profit and loss statements, organizing, payroll, business taxes, marketing, etc. and helping me prepare my business with financial viability to obtain programs to help me grow my business.”
