NAEYC Self Assessment Family Survey

  • Overview

    Coventry Early Childhood Center (CECC) is conducting this family survey as part of its Self-Assessment to become accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). Family perspectives are essential to the NAEYC Accreditation process. To achieve accreditation, programs must provide opportunities for families to participate in the Self-Assessment and program improvement process. Programs must provide all enrolled families the opportunity to respond confidentially and anonymously to this survey; for example, no names, identifying information, or coding may be used. At least half of all enrolled families must return the survey for the results to be considered valid. The program compiles the results and reports them to NAEYC.

The Coventry Early Childhood Center (CECC) is the first early childhood program in Coventry to earn the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) – the nation’s leading organization of early childhood professionals. To earn NAEYC Accreditation, CECC went through an extensive self-study process, measuring the program and its services against the 10 new NAEYC early childhood Program Standards and more than 400 related Accreditation Criteria. The center received NAEYC Accreditation as of August 31, 2008 after an on-site visit by a NAEYC assessor. The program met each of the 10 standards and is accredited by NAEYC for a five-year period.
