Susan Gray School honored with national accreditation

Around the Mall, Spring 2009 | No Comment | |

The Susan Gray School has achieved national reaccreditation by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). Susan Gray School is one of the first programs in the nation to achieve reaccreditation under new, more extensive and more stringent NAEYC standards, which were released in the fall of 2006. 

Trying to find the highest-quality program for their child can overwhelm parents choosing an early childhood education program. NAEYC accreditation is a mark of quality that families can look for when making this decision. 

To achieve NAEYC accreditation, early childhood education programs volunteer to be measured against stringent national standards for education, health and safety. More than 8,000 early childhood education programs around the U.S. were accredited under the old system, and each must reapply for accreditation to meet the new standards. 

The Susan Gray School was granted the new NAEYC accreditation in November. The accreditation is valid through November 2013.
