Our 100% Commitment to Accreditation Sets a New Standard

Accreditation is an official review process performed by a nationally recognized outside agency that validates our excellence in curriculum, learning environment, care, safety, and organization. We have over 1,300 centers and nearly ALL of them are accredited or are currently in the accreditation process—and that puts us head and shoulders above the rest of the child care industry.

As an educational organization, we strongly believe in the process and purpose of accreditation. It inspires a dedication to constant improvement and confirms that we focus on what is most important for our students, staff, and families—meaning our centers and sites take the care and education of children very seriously. We also believe that parents ensure the safety and care of their child by only choosing a center that is accredited or is committed to becoming accredited.
