Which MFAC programs are the most well-regarded?

I'm considering a graduate degree in children's lit. There are so few, I'm hoping to get a better idea of the pros/cons of each.

Just to get this out of the way: assume I can afford the degree (no debt), would be working while attending and supported in this by my employers, and have a extensive background on the publishing side of the industry already. I'm also aware that the real "best" program is really one that's the best fit for my personal needs etc.

There are very few MA or MFA programs focused on young adult/children's lit, and because of that it's been hard to gather impressions on the quality of each. Since the last time I looked into that I'm sure it's changed - Simmons was the big name, but Hamline appears to have a lot of hype around it now?

I'd like to hear what the general impressions are, especially from people who have been in these programs recently, and wouldn't mind a complete and up-to-date list of all of them circa 2017 if one can be found. I'm interested in BOTH MA and MFA programs - craft-only, craft and crit, or crit only.

Thanks!
