Nanci Bell, Co-Founder and CEO of Lindamood-Bell Learning Processes, announced June 30, 2014, that Lindamood-Bell and all of its 56 Learning Centers have been granted AdvancED Accreditation. The AdvancED national commission conferred the accreditation, which recognizes Lindamood-Bell as a quality education system.
The accreditation process involves three ongoing components: 1) meeting high quality standards; 2) implementing a continuous process of improvement; and 3) engaging in quality assurance through internal and external review. Lindamood-Bell's accreditation is for a five-year term with regular monitoring of progress and reporting occurring during the term. The company must ensure that its corporate-owned centers continuously meet the rigorous accreditation standards.
"We are very proud of our AdvancED accreditation status recognizing our commitment to quality and excellence in education. Every one of our Learning Centers across the United States, the United Kingdom, and Australia share my passion for learning and making a difference in the lives of children and adults," says Ms. Bell.
