Preschool Staff


The state of Ohio recognizes the Vandalia Preschool as a Quality Learning and Development Program.  With its commitment to quality and an ongoing dedication to the learning and development of children, the preschool has received a Five-Star Step Up To Quality Award.

Step Up To Quality is Ohio’s rating system for learning and development programs. Participating programs can earn a one to a five-star rating.  A five-star rating means a child is in a program that has demonstrated the highest level of quality. 

“Receiving the Step Up to Quality, Five-Star Rating from the Ohio Department of Education is quite an honor.  It is confirmation that we are providing, not just a quality education to our preschoolers, but a quality experience as well,” Preschool Supervisor Lisa Hildebrand said. 

The Vandalia-Butler Board of Education recognized the preschool staff and their accomplishment during the October monthly regular board meeting. 

“The entire preschool staff works diligently to maintain a high level of performance in all areas of the Step Up To Quality rating scale.  Receiving the five Stars is validation that our district has a top-notch preschool program,” Hildebrand said.

The Vandalia Preschool is located at Demmitt Elementary.  There are a total of 112 students enrolled at the preschool this year.  This group of students will become the graduating class of 2031.
