CONCORD - The National Association for the Education of Young Children’s (NAEYC) Commission on the Accreditation of Early Childhood Higher Education Programs announced that NHTI was granted first-time accreditation of its Associate of Science Degree in Early Childhood Education.

Diana Menard, Department Chair of Child and Family Studies shares that “achieving this accreditation helps demonstrate our important work in developing strong students to enter the Early Childhood field, which in turn supports working families and provides stability to employers around the state.”
