The National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) is the world’s largest organization working on behalf of young children. NAEYC promotes high-quality learning for all children, from birth to age 8, connecting practice, policy and research.

NAEYC Accreditation began in 1985 with the goal of providing an accrediting system that would raise the level of early childhood programs. Today, NAEYC represents the mark of quality in early childhood education, with over 6,500 programs having become accredited.

NAEYC-accredited programs invest in early childhood education because of the clear benefits they bring to children and families. Early childhood experiences – from birth to age 8 – have an enormous impact on children’s lifelong learning and positively contribute to their health and development. Early childhood education programs benefit children with greater readiness for and success in school.

It is for this reason that parents and families seek NAEYC-accredited programs. Parents choosing an early childhood education program can be overwhelmed by trying to find the highest-quality program for their child. NAEYC Accreditation is the mark of quality that families are looking for. NAEYC Accreditation gives families the chance to make the Right Choice for Kids.
