  • Completed a rigorous process of self study.

  • Demonstrated high-quality programming.

  • Participated in a on-site visit by an early childhood export.

  • Underwent a final review by the NAEYC commission.


Louisiana Quality Star Rating and Improvement System

The Louisiana Quality Rating System is a state- specific program which is designed to measure the quality of care and education offered in early childhood programs. The program evaluates:

  • Health and safety

  • Curriculum

  • Learning environment

  • Family Engagement

  • Teacher Qualifications

What Does Accreditation Mean For You and Your Child?

Your child will attend a school that provides a safe and healthful environment for children, has teachers who are highly qualified and well-trained, uses a curriculum that promotes school-readiness, upholds standards that far exceed state licensing requirements, and implements best practices in early childhood education.

Kids of Excellence and Kids of Excellence Learning Center are both accredited. This is an amazing accomplishment and less than ten percent of early childhood programs nationwide are accredited. As an accredited program, Kids of Excellence joins a select group of early childhood education centers distinguished by our quality, our commitment to young children, and our dedication to excellence.

Kids of Excellence was one of only a few centers in Orleans Parish to make Department of Education first honor roll for the 2017-2018 school year. The Birth to Three Honor Roll highlights sites that provide high quality instruction and care to the state’s youngest learners, children birth through age three.

Currently, Kids of Excellence has a 4 star rating by Quality Rated System administered by the Louisiana Department of Education.
