Kristi’s Kids Child Care
Kristi’s Kids Child Care has had a challenging year. We currently have 28 full time and part time children enrolled. There is currently a staff of 11 full and part time employees. COVID-19 has certainly impacted the center. The center has stayed open and did apply for the pandemic license when the State shut down childcare to serve families of essential workers. Our center has continued with the Step Up To Quality program and was awarded a Four Star rating in 2020. This rating is will be up for renewal in 2023. This program is a quality rating scale that is run through the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services. There are many additional criteria above and beyond basic licensing rules that must be met to obtain ratings. Berea City Schools has continued to provide transportation to Brook Park Elementary when the children are attending school in person. We have also set up our school age classroom to accommodate virtual learning. This year we were again invited to collaborate with CEOGC in their Head Start Program.
