The Fort Detrick Child Development Center continues to provide this peace of mind to the mothers and fathers of Fort Detrick by once again gaining the National Association for the Education of Young Children accreditation.
NAEYC Accreditation means our programs are high quality and provide a safe and nurturing environment while promoting development. Accreditation lasts five years and can only be obtained after undergoing a thorough inspection of curriculum, staff, nutrition, environment and ongoing relationships. Applicants must score at least 70 percent in their overall assessments. This year Fort Detrick's highest score was 95 percent.
