Early Achievers

The South Whidbey Children’s Center voluntarily participates in Early Achievers through The Washington State Department of Children, Youth and Families. SWCC is a Level Four Early Achievers facility, one of only three such facilities in our five county region.

Early Achievers specifically looks at child outcomes, curriculum, learning environments and teacher and child interactions, professional development and training and family engagement. Having a Level Four rating means that SWCC teachers prepare learning plans to make their classrooms a rich learning environment and collaborate with parents to develop an individualized learning plans specific to their child’s needs.
