Homewood Early Learning Center (ELC) will open with a Maryland approved license from the Office of Child Care. Beyond this, our center values and seeks accreditation both nationally and state-wide. We will immediately start the accreditation process, which looks at numerous aspects of a program's operation, including:
- Relationships with children and families
- Teacher qualifications
- Relationships with community partners
- The physical environment
Accreditation begins with a self-study, which takes at least one year to complete. Upon completion of the self-study, Homewood ELC will request a validation visit. Parents will be informed about each step in the process.
