The National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) is the world’s largest organization working on behalf of young children. NAEYC promotes high-quality learning for all children ages birth through eight by connecting research, policy, and practice. NAEYC advances a diverse early childhood profession and support for all who care for and educate young children.
Alliance-Funded Support for State Advocacy
NAEYC is beginning a multi-year effort to implement Power to the Profession‘s framework for advancing the early education workforce in states. NAEYC is developing resources and collaborating with state advocates to implement a campaign-style approach that leads to progress on the Framework’s recommendations, which include competencies, education requirements, higher education strategies, and compensation.
