Why Accreditation Matters
Your young child is very impressionable and deserves only
the best experiences during their formative years. We take pride in
our centers, which meet the highest standards in early childhood
development. Accreditation, while an entailed and time-consuming
process, reinforces the bar we have set for the gold standard in
preschool learning and development. We voluntarily go through
rigorous tests and quality ratings to emphasize the high quality of
our programming for children ages zero through five.
You can rest assured that our accredited programs provide
a safe and healthy environment for your child. We have well-trained
and compassionate teachers, proven teaching materials, and provide
a challenging and developmentally sound environment that adheres to
high national childcare standards. The accreditation process
evaluates the center's staff qualifications, parent communication,
interactions, curriculum, health and safety, and administration. It
can take from 1-2 years to become fully accredited.
How Accreditation Differs from State Licensing
The goal of licensing is to ensure a child's health,
safety, and nutrition while in out-of-home care. Licensing laws
vary by state and provide a minimum standard of quality below which
it is illegal to operate.
A number of national childcare organizations have
established quality standards that go beyond minimum state
licensing requirements. When a center becomes accredited, it has
voluntarily decided to meet high national quality standards and has
made a commitment to provide the kind of care, attention, and
stimulating activities that you and your children
The National Association for the Education of Young
Children (NAEYC) created an accreditation system more than 20 years
ago to improve the quality of education and care provided in
programs for young children, with particular focus on the quality
of educational and developmental services for children. NAEYC
awards accreditation only to high quality early childhood programs
reviewed by a national commission comprising recognized experts in
childcare and early childhood education. Accreditation is valid for
five years. To learn more, visit the NAEYC Web
