PennAEYC develops and advocates for the implementation of public policies and investment strategies that improve the lives of young children and their families through high-quality early care and education. We provide leadership and support for early childhood professionals and other Pennsylvanians that want to be a voice for children.


Research demonstrates the importance of high-quality early care and education programs for children and their families. Built on that foundation, our current programmatic focus areas are high-quality child care and pre-kindergarten, while we also offer our support for evidence-based home visiting and Early Intervention.
