Keiki Hauʻoli Children’s Center has an infant, toddler and preschool program.

Honolulu Community College’s Keiki Hauʻoli Children’s Center was recently reaccredited for five years by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC).

Nationally only 8 percent of all programs in the nation meet the rigorous standards set forth by NAEYC. Hauʻoli is proud to be counted as 1 of only 7,000 programs to receive this honor.

“It takes a lot of commitment to remain accredited. Staff, families, ECE (Early Childhood Education) faculty and students, advisory board members, Honolulu CC administration, and many Honolulu CC faculty and staff, worked diligently over the past five years to help the Center maintain a high level of excellence,” shared Janina Martin, Keiki Hauʻoli Children’s Center site coordinator.

With an eye toward continuous quality improvement and multiple measures of self-evaluation, Keiki Hauʻoli is looking forward to serving the families of the Honolulu CC campus for many years to come.
