North Carolina law requires child care programs with two or more children, operating for more than four hours per day, to have a Star Rated License. The state uses a range of one to five stars to rate each program. Programs that meet minimum standards receive one star, while programs exceeding these basic requirements may apply to receive up to five stars, the highest rating.
Star ratings are achieved by assessment of two quality child care components: staff education and program standards. In addition, one "quality point" is available to programs that make achievements in programmatic or education areas that are not addressed by these components.
"We couldn't be more pleased with this exciting news, and are so proud of our director, Courtenay O'Neil, and all of our teachers for everything they have done and continue to do to provide the highest quality early learning experience for the children of our community," says Chris Woodhouse, president of the Board of Directors of the Davidson-Cornelius Child Development Center. "This five-star rating is truly a major win for our children, their parents and the Davidson-Cornelius and surrounding community."
The Davidson-Cornelius Child Development Center is accepting applications for enrollment of children ages 12 months to 12 years old into its early learning and development program.
