All six Bright Start Academy locations are fully accredited and follow strict guidelines and high standards of the National Early Childhood Program Accreditation (NECPA). National Accreditation is a mark of excellence that very few preschools achieve. To become Nationally Accredited our programs have to be proficient in 29 key concept areas, including health, safety, administration, teacher qualifications and continuing education requirements, developmentally appropriate curriculum, communication, community involvement and more.

Maintaining our NECPA Accreditation is an ongoing commitment proving Bright Start Academy goes beyond Missouri State Licensing requirements in order to provide the highest-quality care. For more information on National Early Childhood Program Accreditation, please visit their website
