Two of the Florida Center for Early Childhood’s programs were recognized nationally through the New York-based Council on Accreditation (COA,) and earned high marks during the process. The Florida Center’s robust Mental Health Therapy program along with its Early Childhood Court program for the 12th Judicial Circuit, were both awarded national accreditation after an extensive application and site review process.

COA accreditation is an objective, independent, and reliable validation of an agency’s performance conducted by a group of specially trained volunteer ‘Peer Reviewers’ who organize an administrative analysis and a series of on-site interviews with trustees, staff and clients. Organizations pursue accreditation to demonstrate the implementation of best practice standards in the field of human services. COA evaluated all aspects of The Florida Center’s programs, including services, management, and administration. The agency’s first accreditation was awarded in 2000 and programs have continued to meet the COA best practices.

“This was a long process and I’m certainly grateful for our amazing board and staff for taking this on,” said Kristie Skoglund, CEO. “This accreditation reinforces the value of our services in helping local children and families in need.”
