Accreditation = Quality Care
I stopped by my Child Care Center to drop of supplies and I noticed there was a large envelope in the mail. When I opened the envelope it was my New Missouri Accreditation Certificate. My Child Care Business has been Accredited since 2003 and I believe that Accreditation is a great way to validate that you have a Quality program!
I was so excited to receive the Accreditation Certificate, because I know that having Accreditation assures that children are provided with the highest quality of care including: Health/ Safety practices, Curriculum, Physical Environment, Family Interactions and so much more!
Another added bonus: In the State of Missouri (where my facility is located) Accredited child care programs are paid 20% more than facilities that are Only State Licensed. So, be sure to find out if your state offers any type of incentive for being Accredited.
Do you desire to get your Child Care program Accredited? If so, I want to encourage you to review past blog post on Accreditation. (click here)
