Accreditation

Accreditation is an indication of program quality.

Accreditation provides child care professionals with performance indicators that guide high quality program planning and standards. Accreditation also communicates a child care program’s commitment to self-study, review and improvement to both families and the community. The Accreditation process requires a program to apply with the appropriate accreditation agency (see list to the right), meet quality standards, and complete a self-study/review.  For more information on accreditation, email lsiebert@cdcccc.org.
