Many early childhood education centers are accredited through organizations such as the National Association for Education of Young Children (NAEYC). Being accredited by such an organization shows that center provides a high-quality learning experience which exceeds minimal standard licensing requirements.
For this discussion, imagine that you are the director of a childcare center and you would like to pursue NAEYC accreditation. You discuss this idea with the owner of the center, who says that accreditation will cost too much money and does not agree to pursue it. Carefully review the article, "Overview of the NAEYC Early Childhood Program Standards," and prepare a persuasive letter to the owner in the hopes of changing her mind.
