Idaho Accredited Programs


NAEYC Accredited Centers

Since 1985, NAEYC's national, voluntary accreditation system has set professional standards for early childhood education programs, and helped families identify high-quality programs for their young children.

The Value of an NAEYC-Accredited Program for Parents

NAEYC can help parents make the right choice on a child care or preschool program. Accredited programs have met NAEYC’s 10 standards for high-quality early childhood education. These programs have demonstrated that they provide a safe and healthy environment for children, have teachers who are well-trained, have access to excellent teaching materials, and work with a curriculum that is appropriately challenging and developmentally sound.
