NAEYC Accreditation

March 30, 2022

Congratulations! You have chosen a program for your child that is accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). For over 30 years, families have relied on NAEYC Accreditation to ensure that high quality education and care are provided in programs for young children.


What is NAEYC Accreditation? Early childhood programs accredited by NAEYC Accreditation of Early Learning Programs have voluntarily undergone a comprehensive process of internal self-study and continuous quality improvement.


What does high-quality mean for an early childhood program? A high-quality program will provide a safe and nurturing environment while promoting healthy development for young children. 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.
