The purpose of this study is to explore the content of Taiwan’s kindergarten accreditation system and its current status, and set forth conclusions and recommendations for future references by policy-making authorities in kindergarten education. Using the documentary analysis method, results show that current evaluation system should practice more transparency in its administration. Furthermore, managers of such system should be encouraged to consider other countries’ kindergarten accreditation systems for references.
