Springfield Preschool Earns National NAEYC Accreditation
Program recognized among the top in the nation by earning accreditation

NAEYC Accreditation is a rigorous and transformative quality-improvement system that uses a set of 10 research-based standards to collaborate with early education programs to recognize and drive quality-improvement in high-quality early learning environments: “We’re proud to have earned the mark of quality from NAEYC, and to be recognized for our commitment to reaching the highest professional standards,” said Debbie Sharpe, Director of Springfield School District’s early learning programs. 
To earn NAEYC Accreditation, Springfield Preschool went through an extensive self-study and quality-improvement process, followed by an on-site visit by NAEYC Assessors to verify and ensure that the program met each of the ten program standards, and hundreds of corresponding individual criteria. NAEYC-accredited programs are always prepared for unannounced quality-assurance visits during their accreditation term, which lasts for five years. 

Week of the Young Child
The Week of the Young Child™ is a time to recognize that children's opportunities are our responsibilities, and to recommit ourselves to ensuring that each and every child experiences the type of early environment—at home, at child care, at school, and in the community—that will promote their early learning.  However adapted, the central purpose remains unchanged—to promote the needs of young children, their families, and the early childhood programs that serve them.  SPS will celebrate the Week of the Young Child April 16-20. We plan to display SP&CCC artwork in Main Street businesses during that week to draw attention to our youngest students!
