Happy Days Child Development Center NAEYC Accreditation

​NAEYC Accreditation represents the mark of quality in early childhood education. 
NAEYC Accreditation of Programs for Young Children seeks to enhance children's well-being and early learning by improving the quality of early childhood programs serving children birth through kindergarten.  The NAEYC Academy For Early Childhood Program Accreditation sets and monitors standards for high quality programs for young children and accredits programs that meet these standards - the mark of quality in early childhood education.  NAEYC Assessors are rigorously trained to evaluate programs consistently and reliably according to NAEYC Early Childhood Accreditation Criteria. While visiting programs, assessors collect data based on documentary and observational evidence, and then return that data to the NAEYC Academy for Early Childhood Program Accreditation. Ongoing training and reliability testing ensure that assessors are always reliable; this in turn ensures the integrity of NAEYC Accreditation of Programs for Young Children Ensuring the quality of children's daily experiences in early childhood programs and promoting positive child outcomes is the goal of the 10 NAEYC Early Childhood Program Standards and Accreditation Criteria.
