Westminster School for Young Children Receives National Accreditation
As you may remember, the preschool (3s, 4s, and 5s) worked extremely hard to obtain NAEYC (National Association for the Education of Young Children) accreditation in 2009. NAEYC maintains very standards and is thought of as the gold standard in preschool accreditation. When the preschool and the Toddlers and Twos programs combined to form WSYC (Westminster School for Young Children), we knew that the combined school would have to be "re-examined by NAEYC in order to maintain the accreditation. NAEYC recently performed a comprehensive on-site review of WSYC. NAEYC visited classrooms, looked at procedures, and reviewed pretty much every aspect of the school's operations.
I am happy to report that NAEYC notified us that WSYC would be allowed to maintain the NAEYC accreditation. To maintain the accreditation, the school had to meet all required NAEYC criteria and meet at least 70% of the criteria assessed in each classroom/group observed. Not only did the school meet the NAEYC required criteria, WSYC met 94% - 97% of the criteria assessed in each classroom/group observed - extremely impressive! Nancy, the admin staff, and the teachers worked so hard to prepare for the NAEYC visit, and I'm so proud that their hard work paid off.
