Rambam’s preschool is accredited by Bright From The Start, Georgia department of early care and learning. Bright From The Start guidelines require licensed facilities to follow strict guidelines that ensure children are provided with a developmentally appropriate, safe, and nurturing environment for children from birth to age five. In addition, to exceptional care, Georgia early learning and development standards (GELDS) ensures learning by providing flexible and attainable standards designed to meet the needs of children’s individual rates of development, learning, and cultural context. The five GELDS domains guide preschool themes, lessons, and activities: physical development and motor skills, social and emotional development, approaches to play and learning, communication/language/and literacy, as well as cognitive development and general knowledge.
In addition, Rambam’s Preschool is also rated as a preschool of distinction by Georgia’s department of early care and learning, Quality Rated. Quality Rated is yet a higher set of guidelines and standards that requires a Preschool’s commitment to excellence. Research demonstrates a strong correlation between a quality early childhood education and how well children who attend a Quality Rated program are prepared for school. In 2016, Quality Rated awarded Rambam’s preschool the highest rating possible, three stars out of a three-star rating, thus placing Rambam’s preschool among a select few preschools of the highest distinction in the state of Georgia.
