GRAYSON COUNTY--A school for young children in the area has reached quite an impressive milestone.

The Montessori Academy of North Texas in Sherman has been accredited by the National Association of Education for Young Children.     

Workforce Solutions Texoma recognized the school Saturday night for this accomplishment.

The Montessori school is the only one in the tri-county area to have accomplished this.

"It's a program that emphasizes quality so it's a better level of care," Janie Bates, Workforce Solutions Texoma Executive Director. "It means that there's going to be better trained teachers and better trained administrators and its definitely a quality program in this area." 

"This is a lot of work and very fast and everybody put forth their best effort and we're just very excited to have this accomplishment," Angela Magers said, Director of MANT.

The MANT is one of 7,000 accredited programs nationwide. 

The process usually takes two years, which the school accomplished 10 months.
