The Norwalk City Schools' preschool recently was awarded a Step Up to Quality 5 Star Rating from the Ohio Department of Education and the Ohio Department of Jobs and Family Services.

Step Up is a five-Star tiered quality rating and improvement system created to recognize and promote early learning and development programs that meet quality standards over and above the health and safety licensing requirements.

"Please congratulate preschool director, Jennifer King; teachers Kathy Smith, Kathy Raymond, Jeanette Roth, Lindsey Silverwood, Rosalie Smith and preschool educational assistants Kim Gentzel, Tina Davidson, Sue Silcox, and Jill Lieber for their exemplary work and steadfast perseverance as they serve the youngest of our Norwalk City Schools district's students," interim Superintendent Will Folger said. "We couldn't be prouder."
