Why is your NAEYC accreditation important?
Our accreditation is important because it means we have achieved the mark of high quality in child care. It shows that we are willing to undergo the rigorous requirements of NAEYC and have our staff, program and facility evaluated by an outside, unbiased group of child care experts. It also gives you the confidence that you are choosing the best child care program for your child. Only 7% of Centers in the US are NAEYC accredited.
