Many elements should be considered when choosing a preschool for your child. This is an important time in your child’s developmental process, which is why it is essential to choose a preschool or childcare program that will provide your child with the tools he or she needs to develop a passion for learning. When you choose a preschool like A Child’s World, you will have the confidence of knowing that your child is attending an accredited preschool. Here is a closer look at preschool accreditation:
- Accreditation from the National Association for the Education of Young Children is something that has been achieved by very few preschools in the country. But this accreditation is the highest-quality seal of approval, showing parents that a preschool is the best possible choice for their growing child. NAEYC has been a pioneer in the world of early childhood education for over 80 years—which is why accreditation from this group is such a high honor!
- NAEYC sends members of their team to each potential preschool or childcare applying for accreditation. These team members are responsible for evaluating a number of different elements in each school. This evaluation is what is then used to determine whether or not a school is eligible for accreditation through the organization. During their visit, NAEYC team members study and evaluate teaching styles, instructors and staff, curriculum requirements, leadership skills, environment, community relationships, and relationships with students. The entire process can last up to 18 months, which is part of the reason why so few preschools have been officially accredited by NAEYC.
