Children’s School Earns Reaccreditation

December, 2016

The Children’s School has been approved for reaccreditation by the NAEYC-National Association for the Education for Young Children.

The Children’s School had very high scores in all areas. This process involved all of the staff, with the help of facilities staff and the support of the college. The reaccreditation is for five years. 

At the Children’s School, we practice the NAEYC high standards on a daily basis. Staff worked through the summer and fall to update extensive classroom portfolios and program portfolios. Teachers made improvements in their classrooms. Facilities staff helped with various tasks so the building and playground would pass the standards. 

“All of the teachers interact every day in a caring and meaningful manner and promote learning with interesting activities,” said Nancy Knight, Director of the Children’s School. “We have a great team and we are pleased that we have been reaccredited.”

The Children's School provides full day programs open to students enrolled in the College with children ages 2 years and 9 months to 5 years, as well as members of the college and community. Additionally, the school serves as a training site for students in the Early Childhood Education program.
