It’s been an exciting month for our sister organization, The Starting Point Learning Center. The program was awarded national accreditation by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). This is an accomplishment and distinct honor as only 3% of early childhood programs in Franklin County are NAEYC accredited. The Starting Point Learning Center is also a 5-Star rated program; the highest rating awarded by Ohio.
In addition to these accomplishments, the Ohio Department of Education awarded them a 21st Century Grant. This collaborative effort with the Starting Point Learning Center will pave the way for supporting up to 50 students in 9th to 12th grades. A heartfelt acknowledgment goes out to Gervonna Flanagan, whose tireless efforts secured this transformative funding with enduring impact. Stay tuned for further updates in upcoming newsletters.
