NAEYC’s Early Learning Programs Accreditation Updated Process
NAEYC Accreditation of Early Learning Programs has developed a new process and method for achieving and maintaining accreditation. While the heart, integrity and rigor of the accreditation system has remained the same, the 4-step process has undergone a major change in response to the challenges and burdens programs face in achieving accreditation. This workshop will unpack those challenges and burdens, provide an in-depth look at the new assessment items, describe important changes to Standard 6, and review streamlined enrollment, application and candidacy processes. Please note that this process is required for ALL programs beginning with the May 31, 2018 candidacy and renewal cycles. View additional Pre-Institure workshops!
November 14-17, 2018 | Washington, DC
Registration opens in June.

These sessions are designed to help administrators, coaches, technical assistance providers, and teachers learn more about preparing for accreditation.
