Keystone STARS (Standards, Training/Professional Development, Assistance, Resources, and Supports) is a quality rating system that promotes quality improvement in early learning and development programs and school-age child care. A Keystone STARS designation informs parents that their children are in a safe, respectful environment in which they are learning new things every day to support their current and future successes in school and in life.
Calvary Child Care Center holds a STAR 2 status as designated by the PA Keystone Stars Program.
The Calvary Child Care Center is located in the basement of the main church building at Calvary United Methodist Church. Care is provided there daily for children from six (6) weeks old to 12 years old. Before and after school school care is offered.
The Directory is Laurie Seip who holds a BS in education with an emphasis in Early Childhood Education. She has had many years of experience both in operating her own day care and in the public school as a teacher.
Several of the rest of the staff hold CDA Certificates from their respective advanced training.
Creative Curriculum is used at each level and the teaching is aligned with the PA State Standards for Preschool children. For the K-Prep class, the McMillian's Little Treasures Curriculum is currently being used in line with the Northern Tioga School District's Pre-K program.
