Firmly Committed to the Highest Standards of Learning.
Day Early Learning centers are fully accredited* by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), a national, voluntary, professionally-sponsored accreditation organization, and the world’s largest organization of early childhood professionals.
While NAEYC accreditors examine the total program, they place special emphasis on the quality of interaction between staff and children, as well as the developmental appropriateness of curriculum. To earn accreditation, programs must meet the 10 NAEYC Early Childhood Program Standards during a thorough on-site visit from assessors who observe in classrooms, and review policies and procedure documentation. These visits take place every five years to renew the accreditation status, as well as random unannounced visits in between renewals.
Day Early Learning is also a Level 4 child care provider, the highest rated, according to Indiana’s Paths To QUALITY* rating system for early care and education programs. That means Day Early Learning has demonstrated a commitment to the highest level of professionalism in quality early care and education.
*Seven of the ten Day Early Learning locations are nationally accredited by NAEYC and are level 4 on Paths to QUALITY (TM) (PTQ). It’s anticipated that Day Early Learning at Eastern Star Church will be eligible for accreditation 2017. All sites strive to meet the 10 NAEYC standards regardless of accreditation status.
