Q1: Must currently accredited programs maintain their Classroom and Program Portfolios throughout their five-year accreditation term?
NAEYC expects all programs accredited after September 2006 to maintain their portfolios as they actively engage in program improvements throughout the five-year accreditation term. Please note that portfolios are only evaluated during a site visit for initial accreditation or reaccreditation and will not be evaluated during a Verification Visit or a Random Visit.
