The Child Development Center Region II Preschool, which serves Sheridan and Johnson Counties, earned accreditation from the National Association for the Education of Young Children. Child Development Center Executive Director Sandi O'Dell says that they are the only preschool in the area to receive the national accreditation.
O'Dell said that it took a lot of work over the last couple of years by the staff to get ready for the teams visit.
To earn NAEYC Accreditation, a program must meet each of the ten NAEYC Early Childhood program standards. The accreditation for the Child Development Center is for a five year period.
