The Al Tahoe Child Development Center has earned accreditation from the National Association for the Education of Young Children, the nation’s leading organization of early childhood professionals.

“We’re proud to be accredited by NAEYC and recognized for our commitment to reaching the highest professional standards, said Teresa Lundberg, director of the center.

The accreditation “lets families in our community know that children in our program are getting the best care and early learning experiences,” she said.

The center is developing an academic support program for after-school age children to create a partnership with families, children and teachers to support grade level curriculum and special projects. Helping to develop the academic support program, the center has installed computers in their classrooms. During minimum days and school closures, the program is also filled with field trips and creative learning experiences.

The preschool offers a kindergarten readiness program as well as Kidbright gymnastics on a weekly basis and continues to achieve high quality standards.

All of its staff members are professionally trained in Early Childhood Education and hold teacher permits through the Commission on Teacher Credentialing by the state of California as well as CPR and First Aid permits.

The Al Tahoe CDC operates Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. and is located at 1195 Rufus Allen Blvd., directly across from the South Lake Tahoe recreation complex.
