PennAEYC is proud to be an Affiliate of the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC)

NAEYC is a professional membership organization that works to promote high-quality early learning for all young children, birth through age 8, by connecting early childhood practice, policy, and research. NAEYC’s efforts are to advance a diverse, dynamic early childhood profession and support all who care for, educate, and work on behalf of young children. No other association gives you access to the same amount of information from leading early childhood experts in the field.

NAEYC's Power to the Profession project is promoting a unified and well compensated early childhood workforce through a widely-agreed upon understanding of the name, roles and responsibilities of the profession. For more information or to become involved visit NAEYC Power to the Profession.

NAEYC is a leading voice for high-quality early childhood education supported by a diverse, dynamic early childhood profession. Along with Americans of all political, geographic, and demographic backgrounds, we are coming together to demand investments in hiqh-quality early childhood education and early childhood educators, because we know that will make America brighter, stronger, and more competitive.

NAEYC is proud to release new policy agendas focused on how our country can deliver on the promise of high-quality early childhood education with a strong, diverse, and effective early childhood education profession.

Join NAEYC in raising a powerful, collective voice to insist that our nation’s policies catch up with the science behind the importance of early learning, and the benefits of investing in educators who are qualified, supported, and compensated for the complex and demanding jobs they perform.
