NAEYC Accreditation

The NMAEYC Accreditation Facilitation Project, in partnership with NAEYC Accreditation, promotes quality improvements in early childhood programs throughout New Mexico.  The project supports ECE programs actively seeking and maintaining NAEYC Accreditation as well as programs not formally engaged in the process as part of a broader effort to raise program quality.

This is accomplished by AFP consultants who are knowledgeable in the accreditation process and with the standards and assessment items and who are available to:

  • Offer introductory  information to assist programs in understanding the process and language
  • Review program and classroom portfolios
  • Observe classrooms and programs 
  • Provide email and telephone consultations and referrals to the NAEYC Regional Implementation Specialist

The AFP also offers seminars on NAEYC Accreditation during the NMAEYC Annual Conference.
