The Garmisch Child Development Center (CDC) is pursuing re-accreditation from the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) the nations leading organization of early childhood professionals.
The process for accreditation involves a concerted effort by administration, teaching staff and families at the Garmisch CDC. To pursue NAEYC re-accreditation, the CDC has been undergoing an extensive self-study process, measuring the program and its services against the 10 NAEYC Early Childhood Program standards and more than 400 related accreditation criteria. Each classroom and the program as a whole are required to create an extensive
portfolio that provides evidence that the standards and related criteria are being met. The next step is a site visit by NAEYC Assessors to ensure that the program meets each of the ten program standards.
The NAEYC Accreditation system was created to set professional standards for early childhood education, and to help families identify high-quality preschools, child care centers and other early education programs. To earn NAEYC Accreditation, a program must meet each of the 10 NAEYC Early Childhood Program Standards. Programs are accredited by NAEYC for a five-year period.
