Danville Child Development Center Earns National NAEYC Accreditation

Danville Child Development Center has earned accreditation from the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) — the world’s largest organization working on behalf of young children.

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. DCDC serves over 400 children annually in its non-profit early-learning program and is a community based organization dedicated to giving children a strong foundation for lifelong success by providing supports to families and high quality early learning experiences in safe, nurturing and engaging environments.  The program is the only NAEYC accredited program in Montour, Northumberland, Snyder and Union counties. In the 30 years since NAEYC Accreditation was established, it has become a widely-recognized sign of high-quality early childhood education. More than 7,000 programs are currently accredited by NAEYC. Fewer than 10 percent of all child care centers, preschools, and kindergartens nationally achieve this recognition and approximately seven percent in Pennsylvania.
