Learning Edge Childcare & Preschool is Accredited by National Accreditation Commission
We’re proud to report that Learning Edge Childcare & Preschool has earned NAC Accreditation, which is awarded by the National Accreditation Commission for Early Care and Education Programs. Our New Berlin location received its accreditation on 12/19/2008 and our Oak Creek location was awarded its accreditation on 12/30/2009.
To become an NAC accredited center, Learning Edge Childcare & Preschool had to show that they’re an early care and education program that consistently demonstrates excellence in the care of young children. To earn NAC Accreditation, preschools must show that they provide a high quality program for children, professional development opportunities for staff, parents a program that has exceeded state licensing requirements, and children an environment that is conducive to their individual growth and development.
The accreditation process included a self-study process in which administrations, staff, and parents evaluated the program in accordance with NAC accreditation standards. After the self study process was complete, an onsite observation took place at Learning Edge Childcare & Preschool by an early childhood professional. After the observation, national commissioners assessed the information provided by Learning Edge Childcare & Preschool and the onsite observer to award, defer, or deny accreditation. All parents, staff members, and administrators at Learning Edge Childcare & Preschool are to be congratulated for achieving this level of excellence. As a parent, you can rest comfortably knowing you have chosen an outstanding program for your child!
