NAEYC Accreditation—the leading organization of early childhood professionals

We encourage all Academies to pursue accreditation from National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). Earning NAEYC’s seal of approval is proof that an Academy has met or exceeded the organization’s 10 Early Learning Program Standards, which are best practices for young children’s development and learning.

We support Academies’ process for accreditation with dedicated Kiddie Academy staff experienced in early childhood education. NAEYC’s accreditation process involves a comprehensive internal review and continuous quality improvement. The standards cover areas including relationships, a well-rounded curriculum, teacher and staff competencies, appropriate and effective teaching practices, and ensuring safe and healthy facilities.

NAEYC accreditation means parents can rest assured our Academies provide the highest standards for learning and development as they choose to enroll their children.

Well-rounded learning for school and life.

Our leadership in the early childhood education industry comes down to one very important element: our commitment to continually explore, improve and meet our own stringent standards. At the core of our philosophy is a passion for well-rounded learning that includes mental, physical and social development.
