Building off of NAAEE’s Early Childhood Environmental Education Programs: Guidelines for Excellence, the Early Childhood Environmental Education Rating Scale is an evaluation tool designed to assist programs in improving their environmental education curriculum.
NAAEE was a member of NCATE, now called CAEP, from 2002-2013. NAAEE Standards for the Initial Preparation of Environmental Educators were approved in 2007. NAAEE is no longer a member of NCATE. From this page you can download the standards as well as forms and instructions for program reporting, and reviewer rubrics that were used at the time.
