PennAEYC is committed to the professional growth and development of early care and education professionals in Pennsylvania. Our work is grounded in the belief that each and every professional deserve access to professional development that honors their current knowledge and experiences while challenging them to use a new lens as they experience both familiar and new materials rooted in developmentally appropriate practices for young children.
