Martha’s Table Daycare Achieves National Accreditation

06.11.2010

We are proud to announce that Martha’s Table just received word from the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) granting accreditation status to our Child Development Center.

Added to our existing national accreditation for our school-age programs, we are very excited to receive this confirmation of the high quality continuum of care we are providing to our children and their families. Especially because of the many challenges our children and families face, we believe they deserve the best. In addition, accreditation will bring additional opportunities to our daycare and will help us sustain this excellence.

Achieving accreditation has been a four-year, organization-wide effort that has required dedication and hard work from all of Martha’s Table. Please join me in congratulating the staff at Martha’s Table, especially Simone Johnson, Director of the Child Development Center and her staff, for what their efforts have produced. The Daycare staff in particular had to make significant personal commitments to this goal. For many of them, it
meant a return to college or going to college for the first time to achieve the requisite expertise to teach in an accredited dayc
are. I also have been incredibly impressed by the teamwork and willingness to pitch in displayed by all the other departments at Martha’s Table.

Martha’s Table could not have done this without a tremendous amount of support from the community. Volunteers, donors, partner agencies, and the families we serve all worked together to make accreditation possible. On behalf of all of us at Martha’s Table, we thank you.
