St. Vincent is accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), which represents the highest quality in early childhood education.

The NAEYC Academy establishes and maintains a clearly defined process for pursuing, achieving, and maintaining NAEYC Accreditation. The intent of the process is to increase the accountability of the system for children and families and ensure programs meet NAEYC’s definition of excellence for early childhood programs.

NAEYC Accreditation is for a five-year period, after which programs apply for reaccreditation. St. Vincent earned NAEYC accreditation in 2010 and was re-accreditated in 2015.
