STARTING POINTS QUALITY STAR RATING
Starting Points changed ownership in October 2022. We had to operate under a new license – for 3 months it was a “provisional” license and we now have a “continuous” license. This change resulted in the loss of a “Quality Star Rating” despite the fact that we had consistently received a 3-star rating. We have gone through 7 Quality assessments since October 2022. However, several of them did not ‘count’ since we were under a provisional license at the time. The end result is that we will not receive a Quality Rating Score until October 2024. We want to assure you that the quality of care we currently provide is the same level of care we have provided for the last quarter of a century. We encourage prospective parents to tour our center and see what makes our center different from other child cares. We provide quality care in a home-like environment with an emphasis on nature-based, play-based learning.
Starting Points uses this app as a communication tool between teachers and parents. We have had nothing but positive comments about this communication tool. Through this app parents have access to weekly lesson plans along with receiving pictures and comments about their child’s day.
Starting Points has a Facebook page. On this page we post valuable news and post pictures of children enjoying a variety of activities.

Celebrating Over 20 years
There are no words to adequately express my gratitude for this daycare/preschool. They have loved and cared for my children beyond any expectation I had.
The school is so great! Nature, science, reading, writing centers and so many wonderful ways to learn around every corner. The teachers are just so amazing and wonderful with the children. My son has been in Miss Lynn’s class (go Mighty Moths) for little over a year now. He just turned 5 and has been writing and beginning to read for months now. He has learned so much educationally but also socially. So so happy he goes to Starting Points!
A wonderful place to work where the staff really cares about the children and the quality of care they are given. It was the best job ever!
“I visited the daycare center a few months ago and was thoroughly impressed with how nice the place was. I was even informed they have preschool programs as well. I would definitely enroll my children. I recommend to have a visit of your own!”
