We know that choosing an early care and education program for your child is a very important decision. The program you choose will lay the foundation of how your child grows, interacts and learns. It is our top priority to ensure that our centers meet the highest standards of quality childcare, that’s why Minnieland Academy at Salem Fields is 100% committed to the accreditation process.

Minnieland Academy at Salem Fields is accredited through the National Early Childhood Program Accreditation (NECPA) Commission, an independent and nationally recognized program that has been supporting educational programs strive for excellence since 1993.

As a prerequisite to accreditation, all centers must possess a state license in good standing for at least one year. The NECPA has been carefully crafted to create broad public understanding of the benefits of high quality early childhood care and education. Coupled with this increased understanding is a raised awareness of the “professional expertise” required to deliver that high quality care and an appreciation of the advantages that children receive from accredited centers and schools.

Creative, uplifting, and genuine are the words I use to describe the teachers and their style of care. Superbly meeting the needs of every child. I actually look forward to the adorable songs and laughs coming from the room and the children’s smiles when I arrive for pick up.
