Early Childhood Education

We recognize a school’s dedication to early childhood education through a rich, child-centered philosophy and best practices focusing on exploration, questioning, creativity and social-emotional development as well as literacy and numeracy.

We are pleased to share the following resources:

Case Studies: These case studies feature key advice for building a quality early childhood education program from the award-winning schools:

Program Evaluation Tool: Specific criterion for schools to use as a program evaluation tool or to apply for a Program of Distinction in Early Childhood Education, which Middle States awards to schools with exemplary programs in a specific subject area.

School Contacts: Contact information for member schools that have demonstrated excellence in early childhood education. We encourage you to use other schools as a resource. Set up a time to tour a program and learn from each other’s experiences. Ask questions. Get to know each other. Learn!
