Child Development Center
The WNC Child Development Center has received renewal of its accreditation by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), an organization that sets professional standards for early-childhood-education programs.
The center received its first accreditation three years ago and is required to assess the entire program annually to maintain the status. Center Director Andrea Doran says it's a rigorous process.
"Our staff continually provides quality care and services for the children, while working to maintain the detailed records needed for NAEYC. I am extremely proud of everyone at the center for maintaining this important distinction," she said.
The center offers care for children between 6 weeks and 6 years old and is the only accredited facility in Carson City.
It is open to WNC students and faculty members, as well as the public. For more information about the WNC Child Development Center, call 775-445-4262.
