NECPA Purpose

NECPA is an Automated Accreditation Indicator System. The NECPA has been carefully crafted to create broad public understanding of the benefits of high quality early childhood care and education.

The NECPA Process

There are four main parts to the accreditation process:

Demographic information sheet which provides the needed background on the program to be accredited.

Comprehensive self-evaluation document which is completed by the Director/Owner of the program.

On-site visit to verify the self-evaluation.

Scoring of the indicators and production of the program's profile and council review.
