Setting goals for continuous quality improvement for the best outcomes for children is the rallying cry for staff at Delaware Tech's Georgetown Campus Child Development Center.
"We are never done with our goals," said Christiana Roberts, the center's director. "We are always interested in learning about the best research-based practices because our kids deserve it."
More than 90 children benefit from Christiana and her team's steadfast commitment to quality. The site includes six classrooms serving infants, toddlers, and preschool ages. The students are family members of the college's faculty and staff in addition to children from the surrounding community, including students funded through ECAP.
The center also serves as a lab school for students studying early childhood education. "Our teachers serve as mentors to the students, often our teachers are graduates of the program," said Sonya Magana, curriculum coordinator. "Because of our affiliation with the college, we share teaching methods - all which align with Stars."
The Delaware Tech Georgetown Campus Child Development Center has participated in Delaware Stars since 2012 and achieved a Star Level 5 in 2014. "They are a model Star Level 5 program," said Alyssa Stein, Stars Technical Assistant. "They strive to be a Star Level 5 program every day."
