Welcome to the world of early learning. Wondering how early learning is influenced by or related to Preschool Accreditation? To address your concerns let’s dive into the world of accreditation and discover some lesser known facts:
Why accreditation matters:
“Accreditation” may seem like a frivolous jargon to some, the existence of which may appear as a needless and overstated requirement. However, there’s more to the concept of “Accreditation” then meets the eye.
Accreditation MATTERS – It matters to schools, to teachers, to children, to parents and to the community as a whole. Being accredited benefits schools in more ways than one. The journey towards accreditation is undoubtedly a challenging undertaking. However, when a preschool works towards earning that stamp of excellence they grow and develop in a number of ways.
For starters, accreditation helps schools in reaching a wide group of children and families. In addition to that, preschool curriculum accreditation significantly improves the curriculum by adding new modules or improving existing ones. In relation to the teaching staff, there are a number of preschool development programs involved in the accreditation process, these programs help in the personal and professional development of the teachers.
The big question:
A preschool may offer the best in education, extracurricular activities, sports, teaching aids and facilities, it may even have highly experienced teachers, but how can the school make all of this known to the world? That is another milestone that a preschool can achieve through accreditation.
When a preschool or play school franchise earns accreditation, it proves that they follow high standards of quality in education, teaching pedagogy, curriculum, safety, security, parent involvement, administration, and training, it gives confidence to parents that their children will be given the best in early childhood education and care.
