What is accreditation and what does it mean for your child?
June 16 2014
Typically day care centers do not provide formal education and do not have accredited educational standards. Why would it be important for a parent to consider an accredited facility? A preschool that is fully accredited will provide the highest standards of education to maximize your child’s development at this crucial life stage. At Kids 'R' Kids, we are a fully accredited institution with a team of highly trained professionals that will care for your child as well as provide his education.
The role of kindergarten
Most child care facilities must follow local and state health and occupational regulations. Some places to find this type of information are:
● State statutes
● Secretary of State websites
● State Boards of Human Services
● State child care assistance program rules
Some general rules address issues such as tobacco usage, parent or guardian access to the facility, and health and cleanliness standards, among others. Though there are no federal guidelines, and course work is approved through each state’s child care regulatory agency. The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Council on Accreditation and School Improvement (SACS/CASI) is an institution that confers accreditation through the AdvancED Accreditation commission. Kids ‘R’ Kids is the first early childhood educational organization to be district accredited through AdvancED. For parents, this means that we have the highest educational standards for young children. This accreditation also means that the curricula are constantly being reviewed and updated to ensure that all programs remain relevant.
At Kids ‘R’ Kids, we have a “Hug First, Then Teach” philosophy that allows your child to feel loved, safe and comfortable so she will be ready and open to new knowledge. We also teach through play, especially for preschoolers, since we know that a child’s learning process is enhanced when she is having fun. Each child learns at her own pace since our dedicated and skilled teachers provide individual attention.
