Congratulations to Boys & Girls Clubs at Linden Hill for Retaining their Delaware STARS Level 5

Action speaks louder than the words on their backs! 

In this case it also validates those words.




Congratulations to the “Super Staff” at the Boys & Girls Club at Linden Hill . The Club was notified earlier in the week that they had successfully retained their Delaware STARS Level 5 rating.

Of course it starts with strong leadership; Meghan McBride, Site Director. Then it takes a talented and dedicated team: Kayleigh Fretwell, Mary Kate Sharp, Carol Kusel, Katherine Ammann, Jordan Rook, Eli Piser, Megann Santiago, and Olivia Florence.  Add in support from the likes of Elizabeth Schaff, Mary Kate Benson, Trisha Moses, and Pat Scruggs, and the formula for success is complete.

Delaware Stars promotes high quality early learning for young children and sets the Stars quality rating that guides families seeking the best program for their child. Delaware Stars for Early Success is Delaware’s Quality Rating and Improvement System (QRIS) administered by the Delaware Department of Education.  The goal of Delaware Stars is to invest in participating programs to increase access to high quality care for all of Delaware’s children, especially those from low-income families.

Programs that join Delaware Stars are committed to program quality and providing the best early learning experiences for your young child.

Delaware Stars helps early learning programs shine in quality and helps programs that join Stars let families and the communities they serve know about their commitment to high quality early learning for young children. Through Stars, programs prepare young children for success in school and in life!

Programs can achieve up to 5 stars as they commit to, improve and maintain quality.
