Little Treasures Awarded 5-Star Rating By State  

Little Treasures Elementary studentsFurry Elementary Little Treasures preschool program has again been recognized with a five-star rating in the Step Up To Quality rating and improvement system administered by the Ohio Department of Education and the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services.

Perkins Local School District officials this week were notified that it will maintain the five-star rating, which it first received in December 2016. The five-star rating is the highest a preschool can be rated.

Step Up To Quality is a tiered rating and improvement system created to recognize and promote early learning and development programs that meet quality standards over and above the health and safety licensing requirements.

The preschool program at Furry has met all five standards set by the Ohio agencies:

  • Learning and Development

  • Staff Qualifications and Professional Development

  • Administrative and Leadership Practices

  • Family and Community Partnerships

  • Additional Ratio and Accreditation Points

Perkins School Superintendent Todd Boggs commended the Furry Elementary and Perkins District staff for meeting the requirements in each domain for our preschool program.

“This is an extraordinary amount of work maintaining our Step Up to Quality status,” Mr. Boggs said.

The Furry preschool program is taught by Bethany Binette-Ommert and Brittany Sallee. The preschool team also includes Lindsey Holeman, Brittany Remaklus, Julie Taus, Baranda Adams, Mary Beth Koelsch, Dianne Kane, Kaitlin Didion, Tammy Didion, Terri Mullins, Linda Sorg, Ann Marie Frankfather, Kerry Meggitt, and Furry Principal Jennifer Long.

For the 2018-19 school, there are approximately 50 children enrolled in the morning and afternoon classes. Because of increased demand for the program, Perkins Local School District added a second preschool classroom for the 2018-19 school year.
