Academic Approval

Publicly-funded child care centers are required to meet a set of performance and academic standards resulting in academic approval. Academic Approval requires publicly-funded child care centers to participate in the community network system.

In order to meet the performance and academic standards and receive academic approval, centers must submit signed Program Partner Assurances to the Office of Early Childhood.

2024-2025 Academic Approval Assurances

Academic Approvals will be valid from July 1–June 30 of each academic year, as long as centers continue to comply with all Community Network requirements.
