Keiki Center reaccredited
The keiki center at Honolulu Community College has received a new five-year national accreditation.
Honolulu’s Keiki Hau‘oli Children’s Center has recently been reaccredited for another five years by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC).
The center received superior ratings in their most recent accreditation report. The 10 standard areas assessed are: relationships, curriculum, teaching, assessment of child progress, health, teachers, families, community relationships, physical environment, and leadership and management.
“As educators of future teachers, it is imperative that we model good practices with our students so they become accustomed to the level of quality we should always be striving for,” shares Honolulu CC Professor Lisa Yogi, who also serves as the children’s center coordinator.
The center is the primary training site for students enrolled in the Early Childhood Education certificate and degree programs at Honolulu CC while also providing quality care and learning opportunities for children of Honolulu CC students, employees and the community. Staffed by certified teachers, teacher trainees, and student assistants, Keiki Hau‘oli Children’s Center is a high quality, high performing facility.
