What is NAEYC?

The National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) is a professional membership organization that works to promote high-quality early learning for all young children, birth through age 8, by connecting early childhood practice, policy, and research.

Why Does Accreditation Matter?

Accreditation reflects our center’s adherence to best practices in early childhood education, informed by the latest research and industry standards. It ensures that our programs prioritize the cognitive, emotional, physical, and social development of young children from birth through age 8. By aligning with NAEYC standards, we create a nurturing and enriching environment where children thrive and families can have confidence in the quality of care and education their children receive.

Our Commitment to Excellence Includes:

  • Providing a comprehensive curriculum addressing all aspects of child development: cognitive, emotional, language, physical, and social.
  • Employing highly trained and continuously educated staff dedicated to ongoing professional development.
  • Utilizing developmentally, culturally, and linguistically appropriate teaching approaches tailored to each child’s unique needs.
  • Fostering environments that cultivate positive self-worth for children and educators alike.
  • Conducting ongoing assessments of each child’s development and maintaining open communication with families about progress.
  • Creating safe environments with a focus on promoting healthy nutrition and overall wellness.
  • Building strong, positive relationships with families and the broader community.
