The Jefferson College Child Development Center recently achieved state accreditation/reaccreditation for four years by the Missouri Accreditation of Programs for Children and Youth. The center has been accredited since 1997 and has earned four consecutive reaccreditation designations.

Pursuing accreditation is a voluntary, ongoing commitment that includes a process of intensive self-study and improvement. It is a mark of distinction that helps parents find the best possible educational experience for their child.

"Jefferson College is committed to providing the best early childhood and school age experience possible," said Child Development Center Director Sandy Basler. "Our teachers have the experience and education that enable them to meet the ever changing developmental needs of children. They are skilled at creating an environment in which children thrive and grow and develop a love and appreciation for learning. The accreditation process insures that we continually strive for excellence in our programming for children. The families, who entrust the care and education of their children to us, deserve that assurance."

Programs that are accredited have demonstrated their commitment to go beyond the state's minimum licensing requirements. When a center is awarded accreditation they are meeting very rigorous standards in children's relationships and Interactions, physical environment, programming/curriculum, program/family connections, administration and health, safety and nutrition. To maintain this certification, the center must continually exceed high quality child care standards.

The Jefferson College Child Development Center's commitment to quality through this important accreditation process is an assurance to parents that every day for their child is a positive, educational, meaningful and worthwhile experience.  

The center, located on the Jefferson College Hillsboro campus, operates year round and enrolls children of students, faculty, staff and the community. In addition to preschool classes for two through five year olds, the program also operates a before/after and summer school age program for children ages six through twelve.
