Has your child attended an NAEYC-Accredited program? Have you noticed the impact of a high-quality setting on your child's life? We want to hear from parents and families, like yours, who are dedicated to ensuring that your children receive the very best care, support, encouragement, and appropriate developmental learning before they enter an elementary school classroom.
We know you have amazing stories to tell about the relationship you've formed with your child's educator, the comfort you've felt knowing your child was learning and growing in a safe environment, or the moment you realized your child's early education was really making a difference for him and his future success.
Send us your story! Use video, text, or audio to let us know about your experience. The best stories submitted this Fall were recognized during an NAEYC Accreditation 25th Anniversary special event scheduled for the 2010 Annual Conference & Expo in Anaheim, California, and featured on NAEYC’s website!
Please use these questions to guide your story, but let yourself be creative!
- When did your child attend an NAEYC-Accredited program? What was it like?
- What drew you to the program in the first place?
- How do you feel the NAEYC-Accredited program made an impact on your child’s educational foundation?
- Have you ever recommended an NAEYC-Accredited program to other families? What did you say?
The deadline for all story submissions has been extended to Friday, December 31, 2010.
