The National Association for the Education of Young Children is the world’s largest organization of early childhood professionals. The NAEYC offers a accreditation system for early childhood programs based on research, development, and education of young children. The system contains standards that were created from experts and educators from around the country. The standards define what NAEYC believes all high-quality early childhood programs should provide. All Woodcrest Preschools Are NAEYC Accredited.
NAEYC has set 10 standards for early childhood programs that can help families make the right choice when they are looking for a child care center, preschool, or kindergarten. The standards and criteria are also the foundation of the NAEYC Accreditation system for early childhood programs. To earn accreditation, programs must meet all 10 standards.
