STARS letter to families
…..St. Lukes Day School & Kindergarten is proud to announce that it has achieved a Star One in Keystone STARS. Keystone STARS is Pennsylvanias voluntary program for improving the quality of child care.
…..Through Keystone STARS a child care provider works to increase its standard of care above the states
minimum health and safety licensing regulations. Research shows that quality child care increases a childs
learning skills and school readiness level.
…..St. Lukes Day School & Kindergarten goal is to provide the best child care possible and Keystone STARS provides Standards Training Assistance Resources and Supports (STARS) to help us meet this goal.
…..STARS establishes a quality rating system beginning with the Start with Stars level an progresses from a STAR One to a STAR Four designation. Each STAR designation has its own research-based performance standards in three areas: staff education the learning environment and administration.
…..As we move from Start with Stars up to a Star Four the standards in these three areas increase. A STAR Four designation is similar to meeting accreditation standards sat by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC).

We believe the world of children is one of wonder and curiosity that should be explored fully by all children.
At St. Lukes we strive to provide an environment that allows the whole child to develop: emotionally physically cognitively and mentally. We encourage children to be creative and responsible beings so that they can develop into healthy responsible individuals.
Our goal is to provide parents with a warm caring environment for their most precious possessions. We give the children love and nurturing we would expect others to give our own children. We mend boo boos nurse sicknesses
and give hugs to comfort as needed. We foster an atmosphere of mutual respect trust and open honest
communication for all families within the center.
