Q1: What happens if a program refuses to allow a NAEYC Assessor to conduct a verification visit or random visit?
By earning NAEYC Accreditation, a program agrees to comply with NAEYC Accreditation policies and procedures. By refusing a verification visit, the program negates this agreement and the program's accreditation will be revoked.
Q2: What if a program has security policies that do not allow an NAEYC Assessor to enter a site without advanced notice?
Programs that require a security clearance for the NAEYC Assessor's entry into the program must include contact information for a designated authority outside the program in the Candidacy Materials and the Annual Report. The NAEYC Assessor(s) work closely with this designated authority to ensure the safety and security of all individuals at the program.
