NAEYC Accreditation


We are committed to providing quality care.

As a part of that commitment, we participate in a nationally recognized, voluntary accreditation process through the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). This accreditation goes above and beyond the star-rated license that is required of all NC childcare centers. All of our centers are fully accredited or are in the process of achieving accreditation.

NAEYC is the largest organization working to promote quality early learning environments for children birth to age 8. NAEYC-accredited programs go through extensive self-study and quality improvement along with on-site assessments of 10 program standards and hundreds of individual criteria.

Less than 10 percent of childcare centers achieve this recognition nationally, and Creative Schools is proud to be a leader in providing quality early care and education.
