NAEYC Accreditation Awarded to the FISD Child Development Center

AwardThe FISD Child Development Center has earned accreditation from the National Association of the Education of Young Children (NAEYC)- the nation's leading organization of early childhood professionals. NAEYC created is accreditation program in 1985 to set professional standards for early childhood education and to help families identify high-quality child care and early eduaction programs. To earn NAEYC's accreditation, a program conducts a self-study to determine how well it meets the standards. After necessary improvements are made, the program is observed by independent, professional validators and then reviewed by a national panel. Programs are accredited by NAEYC for a five-year period."We are proud of this accreditation," said Dr. Debra Nelson, Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction. "This lets our employees know that their children are in a program that is providing the best care and early learning experiences possible. The staff should certainly be commended."This prestigious accreditation is awarded to less than 4 percent of all licensed child care centers, and there is only one other center in Frisco with this endorsement.
