Step Up To Quality (SUTQ) is a five-star quality rating and improvement system administered by the Ohio Department of Education and the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services.

Have administrators,teachers and assistant teachers 
obtained required credentials and ongoing professional
development hours?
• Administrative and Leadership Practices:
 To what extent does the program adhere to an annual continuous improvement process?
Family  and Community Partnerships
 How well does the program engage families and 
community partners to support children while they are
enrolled in the program and as they transition into  and out of the program?​
