The Children’s Center is a year-round, full-day child development center licensed by the state of South Carolina to serve up to 40 children ages six weeks to five years. Under the direction and leadership of Lynn Williams, the center maintains the highest national standards of quality programming in a state-of-the-art facility and is accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC).
Research shows a direct correlation between high-quality early learning and children's positive long-term outcomes in life, including increased educational attainment, healthier lifestyles, and more successful careers. NAEYC Accreditation helps teachers and other staff at early learning programs develop a shared understanding and commitment to quality. The accreditation process leads to increased staff morale, greater staff retention, and a more positive, energetic work atmosphere overall—enabling centers to provide a solid foundation for all children's success in life.
NAEYC Accreditation helps families recognize quality early learning programs and feel comfortable knowing that their children are receiving a high-quality, research-based education that will prepare them for future success. NAEYC Accreditation offers programs access to continuous quality-improvement, the latest research on best practices, training, and technical assistance.
