We will be working toward NAEYC accreditation.

NAEYC-accredited programs meet a higher standard

  • Promote positive relationships for all children and adults to encourage each child's sense of individual worth.
  • Implement a curriculum that fosters all areas of child development: cognitive, emotional, language, physical, and social.
  • Use developmentally, culturally, and linguistically appropriate effective teaching approaches.
  • Provide ongoing assessments of a child's learning and development and communicate the child's progress to the family.
  • Promote the nutrition and health of children and protect children and staff from injury and illness.
  • Employ a teaching staff that has the educational qualifications, knowledge, and professional commitment necessary to promote children's learning and development, and to support families' diverse needs and interests.
  • Establish and maintain collaborative relationships with each child's family.
  • Establish relationships with and use the resources of the community to support the achievement of program goals.
  • Provide a safe and healthy physical environment.
  • Implement strong personnel, fiscal, and program management policies so that all children, families, and staff have high-quality experiences.
