NAEYC-accredited early learning programs are exceptionally well-equipped and meticulously measured for indicators of quality in the classroom and beyond. From guidelines for teacher preparation through family engagement standards, NAEYC Accreditation ensures that programs are safe, well-prepared, and intentional about ensuring children's success.
Your donation will help early childhood programs serving children in the most vulnerable communities complete NAEYC Accreditation and maintain their accredited status by providing the fees associated with the accreditation process. Supporting an early childhood program as its staff pursues NAEYC Accreditation is an excellent way to keep foundation dollars in a desired geographic area. Programs may apply for support through this fund or NAEYC will work directly with foundations and donors interested in targeting a geographic area to pair early childhood programs that need assistance in pursuing and/or maintaining NAEYC Accreditation.
