Youth Health Service in Elkins has been celebrating national accreditation for its continued hard work with the youth in the region.
Home Ties Child Development earned accreditation from the National Association for the Education of Young Children. Youth Health’s child care services have been active for more than 20 years and a nationally recognized program for 15 years.
“The work is ongoing. We do it every day. We teach; we follow a daily routine and schedule; we form relationships and bonds with our kids and families that attend care here,” said Daycare Director Katie Daniels.
Less than 10 percent of all child care centers, preschools and kindergartens nationally receive this recognition.
Officials said they will continue to work to serve the community.
