The Learning Experience Academy of Early Education in Jackson, N.J., Earns National NAEYC Accreditation
Program recognized among the top in the nation by earning accreditation
June 11, 2019 // Franchising.com // Jackson, N.J. - The Learning Experience in Jackson, New Jersey, 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.
“We’re proud to have earned the mark of quality from NAEYC and be recognized for our commitment to reaching the highest professional standards,” said James Winschel, franchisee and operator of the The Learning Experience in Jackson. “We were thrilled to discover that pursuit of the accreditation fit so cleanly with the high standards of The Learning Experience curriculum. Our curriculum and our teachers already ensure that more than 9 in 10 of our graduates are reading before they enter kindergarten and this achievement is a wonderful validation of the hard work that our team puts in every day.”
To earn NAEYC Accreditation, The Learning Experience in Jackson 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.
“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 The Learning Experience-Jackson an exemplar of good practice for families and the entire community.”
