The St. Philip’s College Child Development Center (CDC) was recently assessed by Texas Rising Star (TRS) Assessors and earned the highest level of certification -- a 4-Star Rating.
The Texas Rising Star program is a voluntary quality rating and improvement system for child care programs participating in the Texas Workforce Commission’s subsidized child care program. The Texas Rising Star program offers three levels of quality certification (2-Star, 3-Star, and 4-Star) to encourage child care and early learning programs to attain progressively higher levels of quality.
The center was assessed in the areas of Child Interactions, Nutrition, and Indoor/Outdoor Activities. The program received an incentive of $1,800 from Workforce Solution Alamo for being a Texas Rising Star Provider.
The St. Philip’s College Child Development Center provides an early education environment for children ranging in age from 18 months-and-walking to 5 years old. The CDC is children-centered and responsive to cultural, ethnic, and socio-economic diversity.
In October, the Center hosted a costumed-themed car parade to celebrate the conclusion of Fall Fest. During Fall Fest children engaged in hands-on activities, season-related learning, and events that engage the family. The event welcomed San Antonio community members and St. Philip’s College students and employees.
