Child Development Center ranks highest with ODJFS
Only three other child-care facilities in Franklin County have been given three stars.
A three-star rated program means that the center offers lower child-staff ratios, credentialed administrators and staff, teachers with 15 hours specialized training annually, benefits for employees including insurance and tuition reimbursement, and teachers who use development screening tools and standards from Ohio's Infant Toddler Guidelines and the Early Learning Content Standards.
"All of us at the Child Development Center are thrilled with our Three-Star Rating," said Jennifer Perkins, director of Columbus State's Child Development Center. "The rating further validates the hard work of the staff and our mission to provide high quality care for the children and families we serve."
