National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC)

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 age 8 by connecting research, policy and practice. They advance a diverse early childhood profession and support all who care for and educate young children.

Alliance-Funded Support for State Advocacy

  • Work with states to ensure that their response to the pandemic and efforts to rebuild the child care sector are informed by the voices of early childhood educators. Main strategies include surveys, focus groups, data analysis, storytelling, and communications through traditional and social media.

  • Implement the Unifying Framework for the Early Childhood Education Profession by moving at least one piece of adapted model legislation or administration regulation in the 2021 legislative session in at least one selected early adopter state.

  • Respond to the multitude of TA requests from Alliance allies and NAEYC affiliates in states across the country on a range of issues, especially workforce policy and engaging educators in grassroots communities.
