  • 1.  School Age and Accreditation

    Posted 09-28-2021 12:55 PM
    I am looking for more information on centers with part time after schoolers- specifically accreditation for those with less than 50% kindergarteners in the school age program.  Is it required to include the school age in pursuing accreditation?

    Hello Mary,

    Thank you for your question! Programs are not required to include before and after programs in the accreditation process.

    Let us know if you have other questions!
