NAEYC works with NCATE (National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education) to review the early childhood programs at four-year colleges and universities. NAEYC peer reviewers are faculty in early childhood programs and evaluate program reports to determine whether programs meet the NAEYC Professional Preparation Standards. If a program meets the standards and receives National Recognition, and if the institution goes on to be accredited by NCATE, the program has received a nationally known mark of quality. Currently, there are over 450 NAEYC recognized baccalaureate and graduate programs in 38 states.
