New program aims to improve child care quality

As mandated by the State of Ohio, Family Child Care Providers must be Step Up to Quality rated by 2020 to continue serving children who receive publicly funded child care benefits.

Step Up To Quality (SUTQ) is a five-star quality rating and improvement system administered by the Ohio Department of Education and the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services. SUTQ recognizes and promotes learning and development programs that meet quality program standards that exceed licensing health and safety regulations.  The program standards are based on national research identifying standards which lead to improved outcomes for children.
