Kiddie Academy of Chesterfield Earns Accreditation from NAEYC

May 2, 2022

Only 1 in 10 preschool programs in Missouri have earned the designation of NAEYC Accreditation.

We’re so proud to be among them.

Kiddie Academy of Chesterfield has recently earned accreditation by NAEYC (National Association for the Education of Young Children). NAEYC is the largest and most well-respected accrediting organization for preschool programs in the country. An accredited program gives Kiddie Academy families the comfort of knowing their child’s early education is top-notch. 
 
NAEYC-Accredited programs demonstrate their quality by meeting the 10 NAEYC Early Learning Program Standards, which are research-based best practices for young children’s development and learning.

Rigorous Evaluations

A family’s care, safety, and happiness are our utmost concerns, which is why we took the voluntary step to becoming accredited.

There are over 400 criteria to prove a program meets NAEYC standards. Reports are submitted to NAEYC every year, along with new verification procedures including unannounced visits to maintain our accreditation.

‚ÄčThe criteria evaluated include:

  • Teachers
  • Curriculum
  • Teaching Methods
  • Student Assessments
  • Healthy Practices
  • Family Engagement
  • Student/Teacher Relationships
  • Community Relationships
  • School Environment
