Frequently Asked Questions

Why choose a NAEYC-accredited program?

NAEYC-accredited programs have demonstrated a commitment to providing a high quality program for young children and their families.  While the NAEYC accreditation process examines the total program, greatest emphasis is placed on the quality of interactions among staff and children and the developmental appropriateness of the curriculum -- what really happens to the children.  Health and safety, staffing, staff qualifications, physical environment, and administration are all reviewed during accreditation, but primary consideration is given to the nature of the child's experience.
