KY ALL STARS RATING
Our Pre-K and Aftercare programs have a 4 STAR rating!

Kentucky All STARS is Kentucky’s quality rating and improvement system serving all early care and education programs – including childcare centers, Head Start and preschool. The unified system is based on Kentucky’s Early Childhood Standards and research-based indicators of quality. Kentucky All STARS recognizes programs that have made a commitment to continuous quality improvement and provides programs with additional support including training, technical assistance and coaching.  

Every day in a child’s life makes a difference, so choose child care carefully. Look for the STARS.

529 PLAN
Named after section 529 of the tax code, the 529 plan is a tax-advantaged plan operated by a state or an education institution designed to encourage saving for college. The federal tax advantage is that earnings on funds contributed to 529 accounts are not federally taxed when withdrawals are used for educational purposes. As of January 1, 2018, 529 plans may be used for K-12 education tuition.

We are using a revolutionary program to accelerate your child’s potential for academic, athletic, and social success. This research-validated program is designed to stimulate your child’s  VISUAL processing,  AUDITORY  
processing, as well as their  MOTOR  skills. The outcome is a better integrated and balanced child who will perform better in school and at home.
