Early Childhood Education and the NAEYC


Families who have dedicated efforts to find the best early childhood programs for their children with developmental delays, disabilities, chronic health conditions or physical challenges may benefit from seeking information from the same resources as their neighbors.

The National Association for the Education of Young Children, NAEYC, provides resources, information, conferences and support for early childhood programs, educators, caregivers, families and other advocates for children. Dedicated to raising the quality of programs for children through the age of eight years old, the NAEYC provides program standards and basic information for families on quality preschool, kindergarten and primary education programs, as well as childcare.

Many parents of children with special needs are determined to find the best opportunities for their sons and daughters to grow up included in the stimulating and nurturing environments that also benefit their mainstream peers. The NAEYC offers accreditation to programs that meet their standards as well as ongoing training and continuing education for staff, mentors and trainers in the field.

The annual NAEYC Conferences in 2013 is scheduled for November 20-23 in Washington D.C.

The National Institute for Early Childhood Professional Development is designed for professionals who prepare, mentor and train early childhood professionals. NAEYC's 2013 NIECPD Developmentally Appropriate Practice will be held June 9 – 12 in San Francisco. Many outstanding regional, state and local conferences on early childhood education are also listed at their website.

NAEYC State, Regional and Local)Affiliate Conference Information can be found at the NAEYC website - http://www.naeyc.org

Browse at your local bookstore, public library, or online retailers for titles like Developmentally Appropriate Play: Guiding Young Children to a Higher Level or Developmentally Appropriate Practice in Early Childhood Programs (N.A.E.Y.C. Series #234)
