The Caddo Kiowa Child Development Center recently completed their accreditation process with Early Learning Leaders. The National Accreditation Commission for Early Care and Education Programs offers early childhood leaders the opportunity to demonstrate and document quality performance using research-based criteria and evidence-based practices. The National Accreditation Commission provides a comprehensive, ongoing quality improvement system that recognizes the inherent diversity among programs through the self-study and award process. Over 1,300 early learning programs in 35 states, the District of Colombia as well as many overseas early learning programs participate. Others who participate include universities and college campus-based programs, private child care, faith-based preschools, Head Start, public Pre-K, corporate centers, DoD programs, employer-sponsored programs, and Montessori programs.
The Child Care Center has been open on Caddo Kiowa Technology Center’s campus since 1981. The program has been rated a three STAR center and nationally accredited since 1998. CKTC is very proud of the staff and their accomplishments with completing this process through a pandemic.
