Preparing Shining Star Chase for Kindergarten

A Wayne County Keystone STAR 3 program, Myrtis's Preschool and Creative Learning Center, has prepared Chase for a successful future!

Chase Hanichak Is A Shining Star

Thanks to Myrtis's Preschool faculty and the Keystone STARS program, my son, Chase, is more than prepared for kindergarten. While attending Myrtis's Preschool, he has progressed academically and socially. Because of the early childhood education Chase is receiving, he has improved skills such as reading, writing and interacting with others. Thank you, Myrtis and staff, for helping me prepare Chase for a successful future.

And now a note from the Director of Myrtis's Preschool and Creative Learning Center:

I first became a participant of the Keystone Stars Program in 2004. The program has provided my staff and me with the means to make continuous quality improvements in all domains of quality child care and education. It has brought about reflection and change in classroom environments, parent involvement, education and business practices.

I have chosen all of these nominees because the Stars program has helped all these children grow and develop in their cognitive, social-emotion, motor, creative, language, mathematical, scientific, health, and community skills. I've seen and experienced all of these children conquer great milestones and I truly believe the Keystone Stars has played a great part in their success. All children are shining stars and it is a comfort to know that our state takes pride in providing them and our center with the best possible outlets to make each and every one successful now and for years to come.
