Cedar Crest Academy has achieved Better Beginnings Level 2 Certification as an Arkansas Better Beginnings facility. Better Beginnings is a voluntary quality rating improvement system for licensed child care and education facilities in Arkansas. During the Better Beginnings certification process, our facility was assessed in five areas:
- Administrator and Staff Qualifications and Training
- Learning Environment
- Child Health and Development
All child care facilities in Arkansas are licensed by the Department of Human Services. Minimum licensing regulations primarily address health and safety issues. Better Beginnings, however, looks beyond minimum standards, evaluating the elements of high quality child care and early education experiences.
Here are some of the things you may expect as a result of our decision to meet the higher standards for Better Beginnings Level 2 Certification:
- Additional training for staff and administrators
- A self-evaluation of classroom quality
- Increased knowledge of children’s health and development
