Over 20 years of high quality childcare

In 1998, the first Kids Only Early Learning Center was opened by Tamera and Paul McTrusty of Ashtabula, Ohio. Since then, our high quality childcare centers have been providing award winning early childhood education and childcare to the residents of Ashtabula County. All 4 Kids Only centers have received 5 Star Step Up to Quality awards, the highest childcare quality rating available in the state of Ohio. Kids Only now has locations in Ashtabula, Jefferson, Geneva, and Kingsville.

5 Star Step Up To Quality Rating

The state of Ohio measures the effectiveness and quality of daycare centers with a 5 tier rating system. Each tier (or star) that a center receives denotes a higher level of quality that center has achieved.

All four Kids Only centers have received 5 star quality ratings as determined by the state of Ohio's rating board. These ratings are calculated by evaluating each center in a range of categories including education strategies, cleanliness, staff member credentials, and an overarching dedication to continuous improvement and childcare best practices.




I absolutely love KO!! And I trust them and all their staff with my kids!! My oldest son just loves school! And my baby girl always smiles at the girls who take care of her! My son is so advanced for his age, and even with his wildness they work WITH the parents and not against them, and still show love and kindness even when my little guy is a handful. I appreciate KO and the staff so much! And am so grateful for them! Such blessings as part of our family!

I was on the verge of giving up when I found Kids Only... After having both of my boys there, I would never go to another place..! You will be hard pressed to find a facility that will love, protect, cherish & prepare your child for school better than Kids Only. I am so grateful that we had our boys go there... It was a brilliant start to prepare them for school life...

When Madison came along she was just 6 weeks old when I had to go to work and the girls are so good with her. She is such a happy baby, always smiling when I pick her up. I just can't say enough about this day care. I am so glad my kids go here, the whole staff is just awesome.
