In Loco Parents Accreditation

A mark of excellence that is awarded by ACCAB - an independent, third-party accreditation body, when an Early Education & Child Care Centre proves that it continuously maintains high standards of quality, health & safety in early childhood education and care.

ACCAB’s “In Loco Parentis” Accreditation is a voluntary Quality, Health & Safety Accreditation especially designed and managed for the Early Education & Child Care Centres (EECCC).

The Latin term in loco parentis means “in the place of a parent". ACCAB’s “In Loco Parentis Standard” is inspired by this doctrine that the child care institutions shall act in the best interests of the  children being minded  as they consider fit, while not allowing what would be considered violations of the child's personal individuality and autonomy.

The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (commonly abbreviated as the CRC, CROC, or UNCRC) is a human rights treaty which sets out the civil, political, economic, social, health and cultural rights of children. This accreditation endeavours to support all those who are concerned about the Right of the Child. 

This accreditation intends to build necessary effectiveness for Quality, Health & Safety management in the face of changing needs of the society, parents, early education & child care centres and children in a planned manner. Wherein a system approach made of interrelated elements fosters a culture of reflection and continuous improvement.
