Laparade is celebrating its commitment to inspiring young lives through quality early care programming and beyond. The center is always striving to be the change they want to see in the community. Laparade Early Learning and Training Center was incorporated in August of 2005, it opened its doors as a quality training center for early care educators who are seeking to become National Child Development Associates. A few months later in November of 2005, the direct operated childcare center was licensed with the State. The childcare center and the training center is located at25000 Euclid Avenue ,  Euclid Place office building. 

Since the beginning, Laparade’s God given vision is to be a part of the quality early care movement in the state of Ohio. The center went from a one star step up to quality center to  a five star step up to quality center.  

Laparade stayed the course.

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. SUTQ recognizes and promotes learning and development programs that meet quality program standards that exceed licensing health and safety regulations.  The program standards are based on national research identifying standards which lead to improved outcomes for children.

Laparade will continue to be committed to inspiring young lives. In the New Year, 2016 Laparade is dedicated to serving ALL youth in the community, by providing a place for youth to grow. Laparade will be a catalyst to other youth programs and or childcare centers seeking to be rated and or to maintain their star rating, by providing centers and or agencies with trained substitute staff  through  Dial –A-Sub, a  temporary staffing solutions, endorsed by Laparade Training Center.  Laparade will help mentor  S.T.A.R. youth workers through workshops and seminars.

The owners of Laparade Early Learning and Training Center, LaVonne Rice and daughters  Minister Parris Rice-Sanders, and Minister Deia Bradley( deceased) believe that YouthGotPurpose! Laparade will continue  to bring quality programming to youth, through a variety of ways and resources.
