"Work and Play School is a model early childhood program for children and teachers."


Work and Play school has now become the first and only Daycare/Preschool (and school age) program in East Windsor to become Nationally Accredited. 






National Accreditation is a lengthy self-study process that requires programs to undergo a strict and thorough assessment of their school in an effort to meet the national criteria for the highest quality Early Childhood and Before and After School Programs. Currently, only 5% of the programs in the state of Connecticut are Nationally Accredited. 

The National Academy of Early Childhood Programs, the accrediting body of the National Association for the Education of Young Children, has developed standards to define and recognize quality child care programs. To become accredited by the NAEYC, a child care program must go through a process of self-study involving children, parents, and faculty, and meet a variety of strict criteria related to providing a developmentally appropriate program. These criteria range from having a well-qualified and trained faculty to meeting stringent health and safety standards. In addition, the program must provide opportunities for parent involvement.
