Accreditation

Accreditation is a designation of quality awarded to schools that meet national standards set by accrediting organizations. A commitment to accreditation gives assurance that every day schools meet rigorous guidelines in curriculum, health & safety, administration, professional qualifications, and community involvement. 

The accreditation process is tedious and time consuming. It is even more so when you have other commitments and deadlines. ​​Let us simplify the process for you. 

We ensure your program portfolio meets all accreditation criteria, setup classrooms according to standards, and provide readiness training for teachers and staff. We provide ongoing support and mentorship throughout the process. We also assist with accredited providers with annual reports and resubmissions.
