Accreditation and Licensing

NAEYC Accreditation

Since 1996, Brown/Fox Point has been accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), the nation’s largest organization of early childhood professionals. NAEYC accreditation is a rigorous, voluntary process by which early childhood programs demonstrate that they consistently meet national standards of excellence.


Brown/Fox Point was the first program in Rhode Island to apply for and receive a BrightStars rating as part of the quality rating and improvement system administered by the Rhode Island Association for the Education of Young Children. We currently have the highest quality rating, five stars. You can read more about BrightStars by visiting the website.
