Mt. Olive Preschool
Re-Accreditation through NLSA
2018 Preschool Re-Accreditation through National Lutheran Schools Accreditation
Every five years, Mt. Olive Preschool conducts an intensive self-study that is assembled by a committee including Congregational members, Preschool parents, and Preschool staff. The self-study report examines Preschool operations in seven areas:
- Statements – Mission, Goals, and Philosophy of the Preschool
- Relationships – between the Preschool its families and between the Preschool and the congregation
- Teacher-Child Relationships
- Indoor/Outdoor Environment and Health and Safety
A team of four Lutheran educators reviews the self-study document and conducts a site visit to verify that the Preschool meets national accreditation standards. The site visit team writes a summary report citing the strengths of the school and making recommendations for consideration.
I am pleased to announce to the Congregation Mt. Olive Preschool has again been certified by the National Lutheran Schools Accreditation.
