NAEYC, or National Association for the Education of Young Children, accreditation is a nationally recognized seal of excellence and quality in early childhood education.  A select few child care centers in the United States are NAEYC accredited.

After volunteering our centers to be measured against the highest standards of health, education and safety, both our Oceanside and San Diego centers have earned NAEYC accreditation.  We went through a rigorous and demanding evaluation process in which we proved our programs and facilities develop and prepare our young children for success in their futures.

The NAEYC mark of quality helps guarantee parents and health care professionals alike that children attending Together We Grow are getting the finest care available.
