Kudos to the staff at Children's Center who have earned reaccreditation from the National Association for the Education of Young Children -- the highest of standards in early care settings. In preparation for the site visit at the end of June, lead teachers Jenna Kenny, Chelsea Newman, and Elizabeth Backes spent many extra hours preparing portfolios to show evidence of the great work being done. NAEYC requires sites to meet 70 percent of assessed criteria for each classroom and 80 percent of assessed criteria for each program standard. Our classrooms met 97 percent and our program met 90 to 100 percent overall on the standards.
