Shining Star Isaiah is getting ready for kindergarten

A Wayne County Keystone STAR 3 program, Myrtis's Preschool and Creative Learning Center, is helping Isaiah to do what it takes to not only get ready for kindergarten, but to become a Shining Star!

Isaiah G. Is A Shining STAR

Isaiah G. is my 7 year old son who has been attending Myrtis's Preschool for some time now.

When entering Myrtis's, Isaiah struggled with social skills, learning skills, etc. Since he has been attending Myrtis's, Isaiah has improved with social skills. Isaiah has friends and knows the teachers' names. He was prepared in learning skills when he entered kindergarten. Isaiah is still learning today.

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.
