To be recognized as a Five-Star Program, the KCS Preschool submitted evidence that showed they have completed standards by the Ohio Department of Education and the Ohio Department of Jobs and Family Services.

Each student spoke at the Board Meeting and said why they were “a star” at preschool:

Finn Sprang:  “I am a star, because I go to Kenton City Preschool.”

Noah Reed:  “I am a star, because at school I learn by playing.”

Steena Dudek:  “I am a star, because my teachers make sure I am healthy and on track.”

Adella Dudek:  “I am a star, because my parents are a part of my learning.”

Judah Hudgel:  “I am a star, because preschool gets me ready for kindergarten.”

Congratulations to KCS Preschool!
