Kentucky All STARS is Kentucky’s expanded five-star quality rating and improvement system for early care and education programs. Studies show that children who attend high quality early learning environments have better math, language and social skills. The unified system serves all early care and education programs that receive public funding including child care centers, Head Start and public preschool. Kentucky All STARS is based on Kentucky’s Early Childhood Standards and research-based indicators of quality. It recognizes programs that have made a commitment to continuous quality improvement.
Each CCS elementary school houses a preschool program classroom and each classroom has been awarded the highest quality rating of five stars. The schools were notified on January 4, 2017 and the quality rating for each program will be in force until 2020. CCS is very proud of our preschool programs.
