MARYLAND EXCELS - LEVEL IV
The Creative Children's Center has adopted an aggressive approach for program improvement initiatives. With this approach, we have successfully met the requirements for our Level Four by the Maryland Excel's Program.
Why do we Participate?
Research shows that quality child care and early learning experiences provide the building blocks for life-long learning. Early childhood and school-age professionals play a crucial role in creating the stable foundation that children need to be successful. By participating in Maryland EXCELS, our programs are showing a commitment to quality and excellence for our growing community. Preparing your child for the future ahead, our Preschool Program's focus on Kindergarten Readiness. Maryland Excels accreditation enforces our commitment to higher educational standards.
Why is the Maryland Excels accreditation important?
While location and cost are important, it’s even more important that you think about a third factor when making a decision about care – quality. One thing is clear from years of research about early childhood: the early years are extremely important to a child’s ability to succeed in school. As parents, you need to be certain that your children have access to quality child care and early education, so they are ready for the next challenge. Our programs will maintain this accreditation in order to better serve our community.
