Christian Child Care has lots to celebrate

[March 23, 2010]  For the past year Christian Child Care has been working toward achieving quality star ratings. These ratings are 1 to 4, like star ratings for restaurants. This means that the program at Christian Child Care has gone the extra mile to make sure the children are receiving an enhanced learning and care experience.

The quality rating is a voluntary process and recognizes a program's effort in going beyond the minimum state licensing requirements when caring for children.

The quality certification is a detailed process and takes many months of preparation by the director, teachers and board. Independent evaluators, using a set of nationally recognized standards, observed in classrooms. They evaluated how the teachers work with the children, how rooms are set up and what learning materials are available. The director, Coleen Moore, was also evaluated on administrative and business practices.

This is the first of many goals for Christian Child Care. This summer the program is applying for accreditation. Again evaluators will come and observe the program and administration practices to see if the center meets the accreditation standards of the National Accreditation Commission.

To meet these standards, Christian Child Care needs to update some equipment and is having a pork chop fundraiser to help meet those goals. The fundraiser will be on April 22 from 4:30 to 7 p.m. at Christian Child Care, 721 Wyatt Ave. in Lincoln. Tickets are $8 per meal. Take the curve to the back of the center and the dinner will be delivered to your car.

The fundraiser goal is to sell 500 tickets. If you would like tickets or information on the child care center, contact Moore at 217-732-5750.
