In this section of the NCA website you can access information about applying for accredited membership and re-accreditation with NCA.
If you are not currently an accredited member and your organization would like to apply for accreditation, please visit the links below, review the information and contact the Program Associate for your area for further assistance.
If you are currently an accredited member and your center is up for re-accreditation (following the 5 year cycle), the year prior to your scheduled evaluation you will be notified by NCA. For re-accreditation, members must participate in the re-evaluation process every five years.
Before you start, please follow the link below and carefully read the Instructions:
As you will notice, the forms and documents that you need to provide for accreditation and re-accreditation are the same. However there are some differences in the procedure that are noted in the Instruction document.
Currently we are requesting the submission of 3 electronic copies of your application saved in a folder on 3 separate PC formatted USB flash drives. These flash drives and the application processing fee need to be mailed to:
National Children’s Alliance
516 C Street NE
Washington, DC 20002
