This past November the state funded Preschool for All programs located in Lincoln and Edison Schools were reviewed by the Illinois State Board of Education during a month-long evaluation process. We are proud to announce that Lyons District 103 has been awarded the Gold Circle of Quality according to ExceleRate Illinois. Excelerate Illinois is a statewide quality rating and improvement system which recognizes early learning providers for their ongoing efforts to improve the quality of care for young children and their families.
The Gold Circle of Quality recognizes programs that meet or go beyond the highest quality goals. Gold Circle programs have met the highest quality standards in three areas: learning environment and teaching quality; administrative standards; and staff training and education.
Congratulations to the early childhood staff in each of these classrooms who make continuous quality a priority by putting children first.
