GRU Child Care receives 3-star rating, Shape Award

The GRU Child Care Center just achieved a 3-star rating, the highest possible, from the Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning (DECAL) for the third consecutive year. It is one of only a handful of centers in the state to do this for three years in a row.

In addition, the Child Care Center was also recognized as a model Early Care and Learning Program in Nutrition and Physical Activity from the Governor’s Childhood Obesity Initiative, Georgia Shape.

As a Georgia Shape Award winner, the Child Care Center will be recognized on the Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning website as an official Georgia Shape Award winner. It will also receive a prize pack and a window cling signifying the Child Care Center as a Georgia Shape facility.
