NAEYC follows an established policy to ensure that accredited programs maintain substantial compliance with the NAEYC Early Learning Program Standards and Assessment Items. To fulfill this obligation, NAEYC requires programs to submit to additional verification when information suggests that their ability to maintain compliance with the Program Standards is in question.
Additional verification may be required, based on information received from the following submissions:
- Candidacy materials
- Site visit
- Annual report
- Renewal materials
- 72-hour notification
Additional verification may be obtained through any of the following options:
Additional Documentation—NAEYC may request written documentation to be submitted by the program, which could include copies of license, recent reports, content of training units, and surveys of teaching staff or families.
Verification Interview—NAEYC may conduct a phone interview if further information is needed.
Verification Visit—A verification visit may be conducted by an NAEYC assessor when a program’s compliance with the NAEYC Early Learning Program Standards and Assessment Items cannot be fully verified through additional documentation or verification interviews. When a verification visit is needed, the program will incur the cost of the visit. Click here for fee information
