Accreditation facilitation projects (AFP) are leaders that give direct support to programs, motivating all—those programs working toward accreditation and others that are not.
AFPs support the quality improvement efforts of child care centers, preschools, and other early learning programs (in local communities as well as at the state level) as a part of broader efforts to raise program quality. AFPs provide technical assistance and other support to programs working on NAEYC Accreditation through individually tailored services. They help programs understand the steps of the accreditation process and the language of NAEYC Accreditation.
