Doing What's Right For The Right Reasons

Auntie Mame's Accreditations



What is Accreditation?

Accreditation is an official review process performed by a  nationally-recognized outside agency. The process of achieving and  maintaining accreditation is no easy feat. It involves staff and family  participation, classroom observations, and health and safety checks. The  accrediting agencies have high standards that often go above and beyond  our state’s minimum licensing requirements for child care centers. We  have to meet these high standards in order to achieve this mark of  excellence.

Accreditation Equals a Commitment to Our Families

Our centers are accredited because we believe so strongly in the  process and its purpose: to ensure your child receives the very best  education and care in the early years that we know are so important to  development. When your child is enrolled at our accredited center, you  will experience the difference. 

Doing the Right Thing for You and Your Child

Accreditation inspires a dedication to constant improvement in all  areas—meaning our centers take the care and education of your child very  seriously and work tirelessly to answer “yes” to important questions  about: 

  • The Teachers: Are  they professional, experienced, nurturing, and qualified? Do they form  bonds with the children and build trust with families?
  • The Environment: Is it safe, clean, and organized? Are daily routines clear?
  • The Curriculum: Does it spark a joy of learning  and is it appropriate for each stage of development? Is there time and  space for children to explore in the classroom and outside?

These are likely many of the same questions you’re asking yourself or  a Center Director on a tour. In an accredited center, the answer is a  resounding “yes” to these and many other important questions. The answer  is “yes” to what matters most to you as a loving, involved parent.

We’re proud to have the most nationally accredited  early learning centers in the country—nearly 1400. We’re dedicated to  achieving 100 percent accreditation for all of our eligible centers—and  that puts us head and shoulders above the rest of the industry.

Who Accredits Our Center?

Our centers pursue national accreditation from one of three national early childhood accreditation agencies:

National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC)
National Accreditation Commission for Early Care and Education Programs (NAC)
National Early Childhood Program Accreditation (NECPA)
