Early Childhood Education Program Accreditation Renewed

The A.A.S. Early Childhood Education degree program at Rockingham Community College has earned renewed accreditation from the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC).

The accreditation decision is based on the NAEYC Commission review of the program self-study report, peer review team report, and written response. The Commission evaluates the patterns of evidence indicating ability to support positive student outcomes in relation to the accreditation standards and offers feedback on the program strengths and areas for consideration. Special attention is given to the use of student assessments and performance data to increase program effectiveness, capacity, and innovation.
