Preschool STARS


5 Star Rating System 5 stars
We are pleased to announce that our program, Thatcher Brook Primary School Preschool program, is a participant in Vermont's STep Ahead Recognition System (STARS) program. STARS recognizes the accomplishments of registered and licensed programs for achievements above and beyond what is required by state regulations for licensed and registered child care programs.
STARS is based on five "arenas of action" that have standards for compliance with regulations, education, family services, program practices, and administration. Each arena has 1, 2, or 3 points for achievements of increasing difficulty. Programs can earn from 1 to 17 points and receive from one to five stars according to the number of points obtained.
We achieved 15 points and a star level of 5 Stars.
Congratulations to Amy Chambers, Judy Mulhern, and Amy Scribner, the staff here at TBPS for their hard work and dedication to our preschool program.
