Educational Accreditations

Joyce Preschool is accredited by NAEYC and maintains a 4-star rating from Parent Aware.

Parent Aware is Minnesota-based a rating tool for selecting high-quality childcare and early education: 4 stars is the highest rating a program can achieve.

NAEYC (National Association for the Education of Young Children) promotes excellence in early childhood education. Only 24% of preschools and childcare centers in Minnesota are NAEYC accredited (2015); the process subjects the program to intense levels of scrutiny and ensures we meet the highest expectations for best practices in the field.
