For more than 80 years, the National Association for the Education of Young Children has worked to raise the quality of programs for all children from birth through age eight. A major part of NAEYC’s efforts to improve early childhood education is through different systems of accreditation for programs that are committed to meeting national standards of quality. Since 1985, NAEYC’s national, voluntary accreditation system has set professional standards for early childhood education programs and helped families identify high-quality programs for their young children. An NAEYC-Accredited program is the mark of excellence in early childhood education! If you have questions about the standards visit

The Children’s Center is proud to say that we are an accredited program by NAEYC for young children. We strive to make your child’s early learning experience the best we can. As we are continuing to meet NAEYC’s national standards for early childhood education, we are improving the environment and experience your child has here at the children’s center.
