Accrediation and Licensing
|La Petite Academy is accredited by the National Academy of Early Childhood Programs.|
Early childhood facilities accredited by the National Academy of Early Childhood Programs have voluntarily undergone a comprehensive process of internal self-study, invited external professional review to verify compliance with the academy's criteria for high-quality childhood programs, and have been found to be in substantial compliance with their criteria.
The academy administers the only national voluntary professionally sponsored accreditation system for all types of schools and child care centers. The academy is a division of the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), the nation's largest organization of early childhood educators. A copy of their criteria and a list of accredited programs can be obtained by visiting their web site or by calling their toll-free information line at 1-800-424-2460.
