Founded in 1926, NAEYC is the world's largest organization working on behalf of young children, with nearly 80,000 members, a national network of more than 300 state and local affiliates, and a growing global alliance of like-minded organizations that recognize the highest quality of programming, curriculum, and care in early childhood centers around the world.
The Right Place - School Readiness Child and Family Center serves 150 children between the ages of 3 to 5 years and provides a safe, nurturing, learning environment where the children’s development is closely monitored. Since the center has been open, 100% of the children have entered kindergarten ready to learn.
