MARYSVILLE — Eugenia Hebert, owner of Blessed Child Daycare in Marysville has recently been awarded a National Accreditation from the National Association of Family Child Care. Hebert was excited about the challenge of meeting the qualifications for an accreditation saying it is an honor to be acknowledged for her hard work and ranked as having the highest quality of care available.

Hebert has been providing care in her home for six years and was able to obtain the accreditation through assistance from the Child Development Navy Program. She serves children six weeks through 11 years of age, 6 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday through Friday. The program includes activities for arts and crafts, math, science, reading and writing. For more information on the program parents can visit www.blessedchilddaycare.com.

The National Association of Family Child Care offers accreditation to providers across the country, aiding them in raising their standards of quality care and gaining them the respect and recognition they deserve for their commitment to quality and children. The accreditation will move Hebert’s program from an 8 to a 10 on the state’s quality rating and improvement scale, the highest obtainable standards for quality.

The city of Marysville, benefits from accreditation as it is an indicator that quality care is available for parents in this community. Children benefit from accreditation as it indicates they will be cared for in a safe, nurturing environment and that their educational needs will be met.

In addition to NAFCC, Hebert is a member of the Child Development Home Navy Program and is the first Navy provider accredited in the Northwest.
