Step Up to Quality Five Star Rating

On the 15th of May 2015, the Bombeck Center was awarded a five star rating, the highest rating granted through Ohio’s quality and improvement rating system, Step Up to Quality. Quality and improvement rating systems are research-based initiatives established to improve the quality and care of education for young children ages birth through 5. These systems have been or are in the process of being established in 49 states. High-quality early learning has been shown to narrow the achievement gap by improving kindergarten readiness, increasing third grade reading outcomes and raising high school graduation rates.
