[06/06/17]   News Release!
Wesleyan Preschool and Kindergarten
Earns National NAEYC Accreditation
Program recognized among the top in the nation by earning accreditation

Boise, Idaho– Wesleyan Preschool and Kindergarten located in Boise has earned continued (since 1997) 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. “We’re proud to have earned the continued mark of quality from NAEYC, and to be recognized for our commitment to reaching the highest professional standards,” said Margaret Elkins, Director of Wesleyan Preschool and Kindergarten. Wesleyan Preschool and Kindergarten has been teaching children in Boise for over 45 years.

To earn NAEYC Accreditation, Wesleyan Preschool and Kindergarten went through an extensive self-study and quality-improvement process, followed by an on-site visit by NAEYC Assessors to verify and ensure that the program met each of the ten program standards, and hundreds of corresponding individual criteria. NAEYC-accredited programs are always prepared for unannounced quality-assurance visits during their accreditation term, which lasts for five years.

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—less than 10 percent of all child care centers, preschools, and kindergartens nationally achieve this recognition.

“NAEYC-Accredited programs bring our definitions of excellence for early childhood education to life each day,” said Kristen Johnson, senior director of Early Learning Program Accreditation at NAEYC. “Earning NAEYC Accreditation makes Wesleyan Preschool and Kindergarten an exemplar of good practice for families and the entire community.”

For more information about NAEYC Accreditation, visit the NAEYC website.

“Play is often perceived as immature behavior that doesn’t achieve anything,” says David Whitebread, a psychologist at Cambridge University who has studied the topic for decades. “But it’s essential to their development. They need to learn to persevere, to control attention, to control emotions. Kids learn these things through playing.” Read more:
