Why Accreditation is Important
Accreditation is a quality assurance measure. It is a third party’s confirmation that the policies and facilities of a child care provider follow existing requirements. To obtain accreditation from the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), the gold standard for excellence in the field of early childhood education, Kiddie Academy promotes and supports every independently owned and operated franchise site. At the state level, we also recommend that academies seek the highest level of achievement. Based on the Quality Rating and Improvement Framework (QRIS), states create their own certification systems. This is a structure that the U.S. provides For states to create their own ranking systems, the Department of Health and Human Services.
So, what is happening during the accreditation process for NAEYC? Accreditation includes the completion of a thorough and extensive self-study cycle involving supervisors, workers, parents and the community. The self-study defines program strengths and quality improvement areas; and an implementation plan is developed to map out program enhancement priorities and strategies. Once the self-study is completed, an on-site visit is carried out by a team of independent assessors, representing leaders in the field of early childhood education, to decide whether the curriculum meets or exceeds accreditation requirements and quality benchmarks identified and, eventually, warrants accreditation.
When an Academy receives accreditation, here are just a few things it signals to parents:
- High-quality curriculum and practices
- Qualified and prepared teachers and staff
- A safe, caring environment
- Excellent communications with families
- An ongoing process of self-review and improvement
- Continued commitment to keep the community engaged
