NAEYC

NAEYC accreditation is a highly effective tool for ensuring quality early education services and engaging staff in a continuous quality improvement process.

About Our NAEYC Accreditation – To achieve NAEYC accreditation, programs must engage in an intensive self-assessment and quality improvement process and adhere to a set of standards of practice for the early childhood profession. NAEYC identifies clear standards that address the characteristics of a quality program, and we work hard to adhere to each one.

Accountability

As directors and staff move through the self-study and assessment processes required for accreditation, they are encouraged to identify their own strengths and weaknesses and act to address them. This kind of accountability makes accreditation a critical tool to ensure that children receive high-quality early care and education services during their earliest years when the foundation for life-long learning is laid.

Benefits of NAEYC Accredited Programs

NAEYC accredited programs consistently demonstrate higher quality for children, as indicated by:

  • A staff with more formal education and specialized early childhood training
  • A more developmentally appropriate environment with age-appropriate and child-initiated activities
  • A child-centered physical environment to promote learning
  • Teachers who interact more sensitively and less harshly with children
  • Strong staff communication
  • Better health and safety provisions, including nutrition and food services
  • Better relations with parents
