The Council for NAEYC Accreditation provides a formal appeal process for programs that receive the following decisions from the NAEYC Academy:
- Deferral, Denial, or Revocation of Accreditation
- Denial of Candidacy or Renewal Materials
The appeal process is available to currently accredited programs and programs seeking accreditation. Appeals are made to the Quality Assurance Committee of the Council on NAEYC Accreditation. Revocations of Accreditation resulting from failure to submit an Annual Report in a timely manner are not subject to appeal. The Quality Assurance Committee reviews appeals that meet the established procedures.
