National Early Childhood Program Accreditation Means More Than You Think

National Early Childhood Program Accreditation Means More Than You Think

Posted on August 14, 2015 by Michelle Kraus

When you’re considering different child care centers for your child, it’s natural to feel overwhelmed by options. After all, many flaunt different accreditation and certifications that can make them all seem like great options.

However, it’s not that simple. In fact, some accreditation matter much more than others. For example, the National Early Childhood Program Accreditation is important because it is actually difficult to meet the criteria set forth for the honor.

Programs that have been awarded this accreditation have gone through a rigorous process that includes:

  • Teacher assessment as to whether or not their program meets the standards set forth by the NECPA
  • Development of a plan of compliance should there be shortcomings in a program
  • Verification by experts to ensure that all self-reported met standards have actually been met
  • Individual Council member review for accreditation

As you can imagine, there are many more steps in the accreditation process, guaranteeing that any certifications are fair and can serve as proper guidance for parents like yourself.

At Ladybug Child Care Center, we’re proud to meet the rigorous expectations set forth by the National Early Childhood Program.
