PIC Honored for Quality
August 26, 2015
On August 20, the Parent-Infant Center was one of approximately 30 programs celebrated by the Delaware Valley Association for the Education of Young Children (DVAEYC) for reaching and maintaining high quality care so that children may flourish.
Representatives from each program were recognized for achieving Keystone STARS level 3 or 4 designation from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and accreditation from the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) program.
Guest speaker and DVAEYC Executive Director Sharon Easterling reminded the audience that only 10% of the programs in the country have received national accreditation through NAEYC and far fewer programs in Pennsylvania hold both NAEYC accreditation and the highest level of Keystone STARS designation.
We were honored to be among these high-quality early learning providers who have worked so hard on behalf of children in the Delaware Valley. PIC is committed to contributing to national, state, and local conversations about what it will take to move the whole early learning community to high-quality.
