It has been a few busy weeks for the Child Development program. Three of our four pre-school locations hosted a team of early childhood educators during the past several weeks in order to renew our accreditation through the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). NAEYC is the ultimate “seal of approval” for early childhood centers.
NAEYC visits are unannounced, so staff must be on their toes at all time, showing our commitment to high quality. The assessment teams are very detailed, evaluating our facilities, curriculum, teacher – child interactions, parent involvement, professional development and the list goes on.
We will learn the official results in a few months, but the staff did a wonderful job and we feel confident that we will be re-accredited. Congratulations to everyone involved!
