CCC Reaccredited by NAEYCWednesday, December 27th, 2017
CCC will be ringing in the new year having achieved a new, five-year term of accreditation from the National Association for the Education of Young Children! We received a 100% or 100+% rating in 8 out of the 10 standards assessed.
The NAEYC accreditation process includes an assessment of our program looking at 10 Standards and over 400 criteria, including Relationships, Curriculum, Teaching, Assessment of Child Progress, Health, Teachers, Families, Community Relationships, Physical Environment, Leadership & Management. We document how we meet the standards in portfolios using words and pictures to demonstrate the learning taking place in our classrooms. These portfolios were reviewed by the NAEYC validators during their visit to CCC. In addition validators observed in 50% of our classrooms and examined the policies and procedures guiding the work we do at CCC.
Below is an excerpt from the letter we received:
