On Dec. 12, the Children’s Learning Center achieved recognition of excellence through Missouri Accreditation. This distinguishes it as an exemplary program offering high quality programming to the children of Missouri.
The Missouri Accreditation of Programs for Children and Youth has awarded a Certificate of Accreditation to Children’s Learning Center. This certificate is granted to quality programs that offer developmentally appropriate experiences in an environment conducive to children flourishing intellectually, emotionally, socially and physically. Missouri Accreditation functions in areas beyond the scope of state licensing for early childhood and school age programming. To receive accreditation, a program must exceed the minimum licensing requirements. Programs that achieve accreditation become a member of an elite and unique group because they have achieved a high standard of quality.
Children’s Learning Center is a not for profit, 501c3 Missouri corporation dedicated to providing quality programs and experiences to children birth-5 years old. CLC respects each child’s individuality and supports an environment where all children learn from and with each other. Through inclusive classes, children with and without special needs play, learn, and grow together. CLC delivers family-centered early intervention services to infants, toddlers, and preschoolers experiencing developmental delays or differences in communication, physical ability, social-emotional skills, and cognition. Low teacher/child ratios enable infants, toddlers, and preschoolers to develop and learn in a positive environment.
Children’s Learning Center will be included in the “Directory of Accredited Programs” located on the Missouri Accreditation website. This directory, which serves as a useful guide to parents seeking a high quality program for their children, may be reached at www.moaccreditation.org.
The community of Camdenton and the Lake of the Ozarks area is fortunate to have a program such as Children’s Learning Center available to serve its families.
