Day care center regains 4-star rating

December 15, 2010

WAYNESBORO, Pa. — Waynesboro Day Care Center recently was re-certified as a 4-Star Keystone STARS day care center. Keystone STARS, according to their website (www.pakeys.org), is an initiative of the Pennsylvania Office of Child Development and Early Learning to improve, support and recognize the continuous quality improvement efforts of early learning programs in Pennsylvania.

“The Stars designation lets parents know that their children are in a safe, respectful environment where they are learning new things every day to support their current and future success in school and in life,” Center Director Denise Feeser said in a news release.

WDCC, which accepts children ages 6 weeks to 13 years old, is one of only two 4-Star centers in Franklin County.

To earn STARS, child care facilities and programs must meet certain quality standards in four key areas: staff education, learning environment, leadership/management, and family/community partnership.

“We strive for constant improvement,” Feeser said, noting that many of the staff members at WDCC have college degrees in early childhood education, and that by the end of 2011, 12 staff members will have earned associate degrees in child development.

Every staff member receives 24 hours of additional training throughout the year, the news release stated. More information is available on Waynesboro Day Care Center’s website: www.waynesborodaycarecenter.com.
