Jillian is a better student and a Shining Star!
In Wayne County, Shining Star Jillian's mom is amazed on a daily basis about all the things she learns at the Keystone STAR 3 Myrtis's Preschool and Creative Learning Center!
Participating in the Keystone STARS program has absolutely helped Jillian in so many ways.
She has learned so much in this program that will help her in her transition into kindergarten. Without the program, I feel she would not be prepared as she is.
I am amazed on a daily basis at the things she has learned. Counting, letters, word recognition, colors, writing, and even reading. She is so far advanced compared to other five year olds I know who do not participate in the program.
I believe she will be a much better student in years to come because of the Keystone STARS program and of course to Myrtis's Preschool and all of the teachers.
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.
