NAEYC Accreditation of Early Learning Programs provides a transformative quality-improvement system—a rigorous process programs can engage in to meet the highest program standards for quality early learning. While NAEYC Accreditation follows a four-step process toward achieving accreditation, that process may look different for each program. NAEYC individualizes the process to ensure that your program always strives for continuous quality improvement in a way that works for your staff, the children, and their families. Programs pursuing initial accreditation must complete four steps:
Four step process
- Step 1: Enroll and conduct self-study
- Step2: Apply and conduct self-assessment
- Step3: Candidacy
- Step 4: Meeting the Standards
