NAEYC Accredited Programs: Great for Children and Families

Are you choosing a child care program for your son or daughter? Are you frightened or sad about the thought of someone else taking care of your child? Many families struggle with the decision to enroll their children into child care, and once the decision is made, choosing the right program is just as hard.

The National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) can help parents feel good about the child care, preschool, and kindergarten programs they choose. More than 20 years ago, NAEYC created an accreditation system to improve the quality of education and care provided in programs for young children. NAEYC Accreditation has become the mark of quality, helping parents find the best possible early childhood experience. 

NAEYC-accredited programs are the right choice for kids.

  • NAEYC Accreditation ensures that children are safe, healthy, and learning each day.
  • NAEYC-accredited programs support all areas of early learning and development.
  • More than one million families have chosen NAEYC-accredited programs.
