NSA Panama City’s Child Development Center Earns National NAEYC Accreditation
25 September 2023
From Michael Sparks
Panama City Beach, Fla. – The Child Development Center (CDC) onboard Naval Support Activity (NSA) Panama City has achieved accreditation from the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), the largest organization worldwide advocating for young children.
NAEYC Accreditation is an extensive quality-improvement system that relies on ten research-based standards to work alongside early education programs in recognizing and bolstering quality improvement in early learning environments.
The CDC successfully underwent a comprehensive self-study and quality-improvement process before welcoming NAEYC Assessors for an on-site visit. This visit aimed to ensure that the program satisfied each of the ten program standards and the corresponding individual criteria. NAEYC-accredited programs must always be prepared for unannounced quality-assurance visits during their five-year accreditation term.
For the past 30 years, NAEYC Accreditation has served as a prominent symbol of exceptional early childhood education. Less than 10 percent of all child care centers, preschools, and kindergartens nationwide achieve this distinction, with over 6,000 programs currently accredited by NAEYC.
“NAEYC-Accredited programs have committed to a process that takes time, energy and dedication to complete” states Alissa Mwenelupembe, Senior Director Early Learning Program Accreditation. “NSA Panama City’s Child Development Center has demonstrated their commitment to young children and their families.”
Cmdr. Michael Mosi, the Commanding Officer of NSA Panama City, expressed his pride in the CDC's accomplishment. He stated, "The accreditation by NAEYC is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our Child Development Center staff. We are thrilled to receive this recognition, and it reaffirms our commitment to providing high-quality early education for the families in our community."
The NAEYC accreditation not only underscores the CDC's commitment to delivering exceptional care and education but also assures parents that their children are receiving the best possible experience in early learning.
