Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of East Cobb on Johnson Ferry Road located in Marietta is pleased to announce that it has earned for the third time accreditation from the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC)—the world’s largest organization working on behalf of young children. We are one of only two preschools in all of Cobb County to be both nationally accredited by NAEYC (National Association for the Education of Young Children) and a Center of Distinction as designated by the State of Georgia, the highest quality designation awarded to preschools.
NAEYC Accreditation is a rigorous and transformative quality-improvement system that uses a set of 10 research-based standards to collaborate with early education programs to recognize and drive quality- improvement in high-quality early learning environments. This marks 16 years of accreditation through NAEYC for Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy on Johnson Ferry Road!
To earn NAEYC Accreditation, Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy went through an extensive self-study and quality-improvement process, followed by an on-site visit by NAEYC Assessors to verify and ensure that the program met each of the ten program standards and hundreds of corresponding individual criteria.
In the 30 years since NAEYC Accreditation was established, it has become a widely recognized sign of high-quality early childhood education. More than 7,000 programs are currently accredited by NAEYC—less than10 percent of all child care centers, preschools, and kindergartens nationally achieve this recognition.
In addition, Kids ‘R’ Kids is the first national early childhood education franchise to be granted District Accreditation from the AdvancED Accreditationcommission, the national commission that confers the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Council on Accreditation and School Improvement (NCA/CASI, SACS/CASI and NWAC) accreditation seal. No other East Cobb preschool can make these claims.
Our center has consistently won awards from our franchisor, Kids R Kids International, as one of the highest quality franchises in the state of Georgia out of 45 locations. We are also consistently recognized as one of the top Kids R Kids franchises nationwide for overall excellence out of 157 locations. We are a Double Platinum Level Center, the highest level of achievement within the Kids R Kids franchise system – earning top marks for our educational program and our overall quality. We have achieved Platinum Award status every year it has been given beginning 7 years ago.
