The Family Learning Center of Tyler, the laboratory school for TJC’s child development/early childhood programs, has received accreditation by the National Accreditation Commission for Early Care and Education Programs.

“We are thrilled about this designation, which represents a lot of hard work and dedication from our faculty and staff,” Director Carrol McGlaun said.

As an accredited center, the Family Learning Center of Tyler has been recognized as an early care and education program exemplifying excellence in the care of young children.

The center provides a high-quality program for children, professional development opportunities for staff, and an environment for children that is conducive to their individual growth and development that exceeds state licensing requirements.

To receive the national accreditation designation, the center underwent an intensive self-study process in which administrators, staff and parents evaluated the program in accordance with strict accreditation standards.

After the self-study process, an on-site observation was conducted by an early childhood professional. Based on the information collected, the Family Learning Center of Tyler was awarded accreditation through the national commission.

The Family Learning Center of Tyler was established in 2007
as a collaborative project of the Literacy Council of Tyler, Tyler ISD and Tyler Junior College. It also serves as the Tyler Junior College child development/early childhood education laboratory school for college students preparing for careers in early
childhood professions.
