Crosswalk of NAEYC Early Childhood Program Standards and Accreditation Criteria with Other Accrediting/Assessment Systems

This report provides a crosswalk of the NAEYC accreditation system with other accreditation/assessment systems including the American Montessori Society, Head Start, and the New England Association of Schools and Colleges. The purpose of the crosswalk was to compare the other systems to determine the necessity and utility of the Connecticut Preschool and Readiness Standards. While this report was done specifically for Connecticut, readers will find it helpful since it compares different accreditation/assessment systems that states should be considering in their QRIS alignment efforts.
