The Georgia Association for the Education of Young Children (GAEYC) strongly supports accreditation through the  National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) for programs serving children birth through five years of age.

Quality early care and education is essential for the future success of Georgia’s children.  NAEYC Accreditation is an outstanding measurement of quality early childhood programs, and the accreditation process helps Georgia child care centers to improve the quality of early care and education.
