Loveland Early Childhood Center Recognized for High-Quality Preschool

Loveland Early Childhood Center has received a Five-Star Step Up To Quality Award from the State of Ohio. The award recognizes the high-quality preschool program offered at LECC.

“Congratulations to our team at the Loveland Early Childhood Center for this recognition of their outstanding work and effort they put into helping our youngest Loveland Tiger Students have a successful start on their educational journey,” Loveland Superintendent Mike Broadwater said. 

Step Up To Quality is Ohio’s rating system for learning development programs. It is designed to recognize high-quality educational programs and make it easy for families to select great programs for their children. 

“We believe in Loveland City Schools that Preschool is an important time for young students to develop their love of learning in a safe and nurturing environment. This award recognizes the amazing partnership between our LECC team and our families to support our Preschool students during this important time in their development in building self-confidence and pre-academic skills,” LECC Principal Sara Gehring said.
