To earn NAEYC's accreditation, a program conducts a self-study
to determine how well it meets the standards. After necessary
improvements are made, the program is observed by independent
professional validators and then reviewed by a national panel.
Programs are accredited by NAEYC for a five-year period.
The recent NAEYC accreditation coincided with the initiation
of a Guest Reader Program at the Granary. To raise visibility,
momentum, and excitement for child care, Associate Vice Chancellor
Jean Marie Scott kicked off the new program on March 30 by reading
two of her favorite books, The Little Rabbit and the Sea
and The Big Hungry Bear. The next guest reader will be
professor of psychology Maureen Callanan.
