The Associated Students Children’s Center has earned national accreditation by NAEYC. The Children’s Center was evaluated by a professional early childhood specialist from the National Academy of Early Childhood Programs to determine if the program meets the national standards of quality early childhood services for young children and their families. The NAEYC is the nation’s largest organization for early childhood educators, and provides a process through which early childhood professionals and families can evaluate programs, compare them with professional standards, strengthen the program and commit to ongoing evaluation and improvement. This endorsement of quality is achieved by only 7% of children’s centers nationwide. More information about accreditation can be viewed at www.naeyc.org
