thread’s Accreditation Quality Initiative (QI)

Are you interested in pursuing national accreditation for your early childhood education program? The Accreditation QI helps programs become familiar with the accreditation requirements of either the National Association of Family Child Care (NAFCC) or the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). This QI will give your program the opportunity to reflect on the quality of your services and how these compare to national practices. Upon completion of the QI requirements, your program may receive up to $2,000.

To apply, please contact your local thread office.

Preference is given to programs that are not currently participating in other funding projects with thread.
