How it works
Every aspect of the mentoring process from a child care center’s initial application, to assignment of a mentor, scheduling of site visits, detailed readiness surveys, and reimbursement of travel expenses is automated and refined by the Accreditation Monitoring system. Using a handheld device, laptop or personal computer and the accreditation mentoring web site, the process of guiding program evaluation and growth is tailored to meeting all NAEYC requirements.
Mentors are assigned facilities to visit and can use the system to advise a child care center of visits. Once at the facility, the system provides detailed checklists and explanations that cover all NAEYC requirements in such areas as director readiness, staff readiness, how the staff interacts with children, the curriculum, staff-parent interactions, staff qualifications and professional development, administration, staffing levels, the physical environment, health and safety compliance, nutrition and food, and the facility’s internal self-evaluation process.
Mentors may make comments in each area and demonstrate points with photographs, if appropriate. At the end of the visit, information is synchronized with the website database, and reports on needed improvements are generated immediately.
