Indian River’s Project VILLAGE nets top five-star rating

GEORGETOWN – Indian River School District’s Project VILLAGE preschool program recently received another Five-Star rating from the Delaware Stars for Early Success program.

Project VILLAGE is a comprehensive, developmentally-appropriate early childhood program for economically-challenged 4-year-olds. Its goal is to provide students with the math and language readiness skills that will ensure their academic success in kindergarten.

There are currently five Project VILLAGE locations in the district serving about 175 students.

The Georgetown Elementary School location was the recipient of the most recent Five-Star recognition. It is the second Project VILLAGE site to receive the rating in the past two years. The Selbyville location at Southern Delaware School of the Arts received Five-Star recognition in 2014.

Delaware Stars is a Quality Rating and Improvement System administered by the Delaware Department of Education. It promotes high-quality early learning for young children and sets quality ratings that guide families seeking the best programs for their children.

Five-Star recognition is the highest rating a preschool program can receive.
