The Valley View Early Childhood Center is celebrating the extension of their designation as an ExceleRate Illinois Gold Circle of Quality school.
This is the second year in a row the VVEC has received this prestigious designation for early learning and development programs.
The Gold Circle designation is granted by ExceleRate Illinois, the state’s quality recognition and improvement system for early learning and development programs.
ExceleRate unifies all of the state’s early learning programs under a common set of standards across multiple delivery settings and support programs that integrate and sustain best practices, while publicly recognizing achievement through higher quality.
Preschool for All program sites are awarded an ExceleRate Circle of Quality based on compliance and a score measuring the learning environment for preschool-age students.
