Mayflower Nursery School achieved national accreditation in 2017 from the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), which was a natural fit for Mayflower.

For more than 30 years, NAEYC Accreditation of Early Learning Programs has worked with programs to implement best practices and develop a consistent understanding of how to achieve and maintain high quality. Research shows a direct correlation between high-quality early learning and children’s positive long-term outcomes in life, including increased educational attainment, healthier lifestyles, and more successful careers. NAEYC Accreditation helps teachers and other staff at early learning programs develop a shared understanding and commitment to quality. The accreditation process leads to increased staff morale, greater staff retention, and a more positive, energetic work atmosphere overall—enabling centers to provide a solid foundation for all children’s success in life.

NAEYC Accreditation helps families recognize quality early learning programs and feel comfortable knowing that their children are receiving a high-quality, research-based education that will prepare them for future success. NAEYC Accreditation offers programs access to continuous quality-improvement resources, the latest research on best practices, training, technical assistance, visibility on family-focused search engines, and much more.
