Apply for an Accreditation Grant

IdahoSTARS is offering multiple grant opportunities to help child care programs and home-based centers strengthen their quality of care through NAEYC and NAFCC Accreditation. Grants up to $3,000 will be awarded.

Benefits of being an accredited program:

  • Helps to build a stronger team of teachers, administrators and families working together to improve quality of care for children.
  • Improves standards for the overall program.
  • Recognition as a quality early childhood center that makes an enormous impact on children’s lifelong learning and positively contributes to their health and development.

The grant funds can be used to pay accreditation fees and purchase equipment to meet accreditation requirements. Eligibility of these funds is limited to facilities already engaged in the accreditation or re-accreditation process.

Apply today! Accreditation Grants are not offered every year and funding is limited. Grant applications must be submitted by May 20.
