Ohio’s Step Up To Quality system uses licensing as a strong foundation and sets a clearly defined continuum of increasing quality. It awards programs one‐, two‐, three‐, four‐ and five‐star ratings.
In order to determine a program’s star rating, reviewers assess how well it is performing in four “domains”: Learning & Development,
Administrative & Leadership Practices, Staff Qualifications & Professional Development, and Family & Community Partnerships. These domains – and their corresponding sub‐domains and program standards – were selected after a thorough review of the research literature and promising practices in other states. Research confirms that strong performance in these domains improves outcomes for children. The program standards for each domain do not represent an exhaustive list, but rather the essential list of what matters most for programs to achieve higher levels of quality.
We have six centers that are rated 4-Star (Martin De Porres, Parmadale, Riverside, St. Philip, St. Thomas and St. Ignatius) one center rated 1-Star (King Kennedy) and one center with no rating (Rainbow Terrace) at this time.
