At Circulo de Amigos we are so exited to share with you this video from The Parent Aware Standards and Indicators. This is a project of the Minnesota Department of Human Services in coordination with the Minnesota Departments of Education and Health. We were made a part of this project to help other providers integrate individualized learning as part of their curriculum, while using assessments.
It is an honor to be recognized for the work we do and the best practices we engage in regarding early childhood education.
Parent Aware’s Star Ratings help parents find programs that go above and beyond to prepare children for school and life. Their one- to four-star ratings system – a free service – measures best practices identified by research that help children succeed.
We’re 4-Star Parent Aware Rated!
We are so proud to share the news with you, Circulo de Amigos Child Care Center has earned the 4 Stars parent Aware Rating. This is the highest possible rating tool designed to improve, support and celebrate the strengths of childcare and early learning programs.
This award shows our commitment and hard work over the past year. Gracias…Thank you all the teachers and staff who made this rating possible and to the families who support our Centro and allow us the opportunity to provide a high quality experience to children!
The Minnesota Department of Human Services leads Parent Aware in coordination with the Minnesota Office of Early Learning. Child Care Aware of Minnesota is working in local communities to share the Ratings with parents and prepare childcare and early education programs.
Participating programs earn from one star to four stars by demonstrating competencies in the areas of health and well-being, child assessment and family relationships. All Star-rated programs go above and beyond licensing requirements to support school readiness. By voluntarily becoming rated, a program shows it cares enough about early learning to use best practices and proven approaches.
