NAEYC Accreditation

Second Presbyterian Preschool prides itself in being one of the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) accredited preschools. NAEYC is a professional membership organization that works to promote high-quality early learning for all young children, birth through 8, by connecting early childhood practice, policy and research. We worked hard to earn this accreditation in September 2010 and renewed our accreditation in September 2016. Our entire staff strives daily to operate on NAEYC standards and accreditation criteria. This allows us to provide a top-notch learning environment for our children and a safe, nurturing facility where parents can feel comfortable about leaving their young children.
