Resources and Professional Development for Programs Seeking NAEYC Recognition
Contact NAEYC Staff
If your program is interested in or actively pursuing/maintaining NAEYC Recognition, we encourage you to use NAEYC staff as a support resource at any time prior to or after submitting your program report. If you have any questions about the process, please contact us.

This action plan is designed to help programs determine where they are in the report and review process.
Use this matrix, which includes key elements of each of the 2010 standards, to determine whether your selected assessments have the capacity to fully address the standards.

Attend a Training Session
NAEYC offers sessions for faculty compiling program reports during our Professional Learning Institutes and Annual Conferences. These are excellent opportunities to learn more about the report requirements, hear from experienced reviewers, and network with colleagues who are also pursuing national recognition. NAEYC staff members also frequently participate in CAEPCon, a conference held by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation. Staff present on the NAEYC National Recognition process and are available for one-on-one discussions with program coordinators.
Interested in bringing a full-day workshop in your state? If you aren't able to attend NAEYC events, programs or state cohorts of programs have the option to request fee-based on-site training or virtual trainings. Submit this training request form to firstname.lastname@example.org to begin the planning process.
