  1. Hello Tamaiko,
    It is good for organizations and businesses to network with others in order for them to have opportunities of having more contacts. By keeping the rules and regulations of what the team organization believes in will enable them have relationship of trust with one another and also help others believe in them.

  2. Hi Tamaiko,

    Really informative post! I also chose the NAEYC. I have always like the NAEYC and think they are a great organization that is constantly improving the quality of early childhood education. I also would be interested in the Accreditation Coordinator position; I think it would be interesting to know all of the standards, and to make sure that they are being met.
