Licking Heights preschool program receives 5 Stars with Step Up To Quality

In recognition of a commitment to quality and an ongoing dedication to the learning and development of children, the Licking Heights preschool program has received a Five-Star Step Up To Quality Award from the state of Ohio.

“We are proud to be a five-star program,” said Lisa Kraemer, director of pupil services and special education. “We know that children have approximately 1,892 days from birth until school starts, and every day matters. It is important to us that children develop their self-confidence, social and emotional skills, and a love of learning.”
