NAEYC Accreditation of programs for young children represents the mark of quality in early childhood education. NAEYC Accreditation began in 1985 with the goal of providing an accrediting system that would raise the level of early childhood programs. Today, over 7,000 programs are NAEYC Accredited.
NAEYC accredited programs invest in early childhood education because they believe in the benefits to children and families. Early childhood experiences—from birth to age 8—have an enormous impact on children’s lifelong learning and positively contribute to their health and development. Early childhood education programs with the mark of quality benefit children with greater readiness for and success in school.
It is for this reason that parents and families are seeking out
NAEYC-accredited programs. Parents choosing an early childhood
education program can be overwhelmed by trying to find the
highest-quality program for their child. NAEYC Accreditation is the mark
of quality that families are looking for. NAEYC Accreditation gives
families the chance to make the Right Choice for Kids.

DirectorMy name is Dawn Skinner and I am the Center Director for Legacy Academy Satellite. I can proudly say that I just celebrated my 10 year anniversary as a Legacy Academy employee this past June. I started in June of 2001 at the Suwanee location as a Lead Senior Toddler Teacher. In October 2003 I helped open my current center, Satellite as the Assistant Director and within 8 months moved into the position of Director. I have worked in Early Childhood Education for 18 years and have loved every minute of it.
Working with children is a joy that is unmatched by any other career that I could imagine. Children have such an innocent and honest view of the world and it is such a privilege and honor when parents entrust us with the care, growth and development of their precious little one. Being a mother of three children, I can completely understand and appreciate what a leap of faith it is for parents to leave their child and hope that the person caring for them has their child’s best interest at heart. I have always been committed to staffing my center with highly qualified individuals who are consistent and passionate about the job they do!
I am beyond proud of my diverse program. We have amazing owners, families, children and staff from all over the world and it makes for an environment that gives children a broad view of the world around them. My program is a full time bilingual immersion program and our families love it. It is so endearing to hear our Infant B children ask for “leche” instead of milk and say “mas” when they want more. I am always happy to tell people about Legacy Academy and I can do that proudly, as I know our programs are programs of distinction.
Besides working with many wonderful children in my program, I have three amazing children of my own. In my spare time I love decorating, cooking, painting and most of all spending time with my family!
