The Bill and Julia May Children’s Center at Brazosport College recently earned a new, five-year term of NAEYC Academy for Early Childhood Program Accreditation after successfully completing the renewal process.

For more than 20 years, families have relied on NAEYC’s standards for high-quality early childhood education. As an accredited program, the Bill & Julia Children’s Center has demonstrated it provides a safe and healthy environment for children, have teachers who are well-trained, have access to excellent teaching materials and work with a curriculum that is appropriately challenging and developmentally sound.

“To achieve this it takes a total team effort and I’m extremely proud of our staff,” said Julie Littlefield, Director, Bill & Julia May Children’s Center. “Accreditation occurs every five years and it takes about a year for the staff to prepare for the assessor’s visit. This shows how dedicated our staff is to offering a high standard of early childhood education and this helps us continue to raise the bar even higher.”

Early childhood education programs are proud to be accredited by NAEYC because they have worked hard for that achievement. Using NAEYC tools and materials, the program is making continuous improvement, as well as providing the best possible educational opportunities for children.

“As one of the few NAEYC accredited child care center in the Brazosport area, I am extremely proud of the work that our staff has done,” said Anne Bartlett, Vice President, Brazosport College Industry & Community Resources. “The Bill and Julia May Children’s Center at Brazosport College provides a wonderful service to our area by not only meeting the childcare needs of students, faculty, staff and the community, but by raising the quality of childcare in the Brazosport area. My congratulations to the employees at the Children’s Center, the students and our parents.”
