Community College Degree Program Wins Accreditation

BLUE BELL PA – An early childhood education program at Montgomery County Community College in Blue Bell PA recently won accreditation from the National Association for the Education of Young Children, the college announced Tuesday (June 14, 2011).

The association’s Commission on Early Childhood Associate Degree Accreditation presents accreditation to associate degree programs that meet professional preparation standards, according to its website. Earning accreditation “is an important achievement and lets students know that they are involved in a program that has attained the highest recognition possible,” said Dr. Debbie G. Levin, professor of education and coordinator of education programs.

MCCC’s program, “Education in the Early Years: Birth Through Fourth Grade,” prepares students to earn an associate’s degree in early childhood education, and then seamlessly transfer to one of three four-year institutions – Chestnut Hill College, Eastern University and Neumann University – for completion of their baccalaureate degree.
