Best Practices of Accreditation Facilitation Projects
NAEYC defines accreditation facilitation projects as projects that support quality improvement efforts of child care centers, preschools, and other early childhood programs in many local communities and states and, in an effort to raise program quality, provide technical assistance and support to programs working on NAEYC Accreditation.
A manual, Best Practices of Accreditation Facilitation Projects: A Framework for Program Quality Improvement Using NAEYC Early Childhood Program Standards and Accreditation Criteria is available in a printed format upon request or as a PDF file.
Accreditation facilitation projects make every attempt to understand and communicate the process of NAEYC Accreditation accurately. However, they are not intended to replace a program's direct contact with the NAEYC Academy for specific questions that pertain to its program. Program administrators are encouraged to contact Accreditation Program Support with program-specific issues of any type.
