UPK in Cuyahoga County makes high quality early care and education accessible to families at selected sites by providing funding to enhance quality, as well as scholarship assistance to low and moderate income families.
UPK sites meet a series of standards, proven through research to be the hallmarks of quality that result in improved school readiness. These standards include increased teacher qualifications and commensurate compensation, lower staff to child ratios, use of approved curricula, engagement of families, and family linkages to necessary supportive services. Starting Point, the regional child care resource and referral agency, serves as lead agency on this effort, and partners with Invest in Children to provide technical assistance and training to all UPK sites.
We have 3 UPK Centers (St. Philip, Martin De Porres and Riverside).
