The Malvern School of Glen Mills has earned it�s re-accreditation from the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) � the nation�s leading organization of early childhood professionals. �The Malvern School of Glen Mills has been NAEYC Accredited since 2005 and is thrilled to continue to uphold the mark of quality from NAEYC, and to be recognized for our commitment to reaching the highest professional standards for the third time. To earn NAEYC Accreditation, The Malvern School of Glen Mills went through an extensive self-study process, measuring the program and its services against the ten NAEYC Early Childhood Program Standards and more than 400 related Accreditation Criteria. The program received NAEYC Accreditation after an on-site visit by NAEYC Assessors to ensure that the program meets each of the ten program standards. NAEYC-accredited programs are also subject to unannounced visits during their accreditation, which lasts for five years. accIn the 25 years since NAEYC Accreditation was established, it has become a widely recognized sign of high-quality early childhood education. Nearly 7,000 programs are currently accredited by NAEYC � approximately 8 percent of all preschools and other early childhood programs. �It�s a lengthy and rigorous process to achieve NAEYC Accreditation, and The Malvern School of Glen Mills should be commended for seeking high standards,� said Rhian Evans Allvin, Executive Director of NAEYC. �Caring for children is not �rocket science� � it�s brainscience.
