NAEYC Accreditation is awarded for five years. In that time period, programs submit annual reports documenting that they maintain compliance with the NAEYC program standards. All NAEYC-Accredited programs are also subject to unannounced visits by skilled and reliable NAEYC program assessors to ensure that they continue to meet the standards.

What is NAEYC Accreditation?

Early childhood programs accredited by the NAEYC Accreditation have voluntarily undergone a comprehensive process of internal self-study and improvement. Each NAEYC-Accredited program must meet all 10 of the NAEYC Early Childhood Program Standards. NAEYC is the mark of quality for our accredited programs.
