The Center is accredited through the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) Academy for Early Childhood Program Accreditation. Programs that are accredited have voluntarily undergone a comprehensive process of internal self-study, invited an external professional review to verify compliance with the Criteria for High Quality Early Childhood Programs, and have been in substantial compliance with the Criteria.
A few of the many things you can find in an accredited center are planned learning activities appropriate to the child's age and development, frequent, positive, and warm interactions among teachers and children, respect for cultural diversity, a healthy and safe environment for adults and children, and so much more...
