SHIPPENSBURG — The Bartos Child and Family Center at Shippensburg University recently earned its continued designation of the Pennsylvania Keystone STARS four-star quality rating.

The center, which has held the rating since 2006, can provide child care services for approximately 40 full-time children ages 1 to 5 in its toddler and preschool programs.

The after-school program can provide services for 24 children in kindergarten through fifth grade. It includes help with homework, indoor and outdoor play time, tutoring from college students, special theme days each week, activities and field trips.

Stephanie McCullough, center director, said “Our four-star quality rating tells parents that their children are in a safe and supportive early learning environment.

Keystone STARS is a rating system that offers families a way to evaluate the quality of child-care programs. As STAR levels increase from levels one to four, requirements for meeting higher standards of quality also increase.

Quality standards build upon health and safety requirements already regulated by the Department of Public Welfare.
