Raising the quality of childhood education programs in Arizona
We believe that all young children thrive and learn in a society dedicated to ensuring they reach their full potential. We advance a diverse, dynamic early childhood profession and support all who care for, educate, and work on behalf of young children. We promote high-quality early learning for all children, birth through age 8, by connecting practice, policy, and research.
The Arizona Association for the Education of Young Children (AzAEYC) is YOUR professional organization in Arizona. Join us!
“The main reason I joined AzAEYC is to network with other Early Childhood Professionals and learn what their preschools are doing to improve early childhood education throughout Arizona and nationwide.”
– Jenny Heirshberg, Preschool Director, The Preschool at Red Mountain United Methodist Church
AzAEYC is proud to partner with the Virginia G. Piper Charitable Trust. The Piper Trust’s investment in AZ Toolkit is part of a commitment to enhanced child care practices and after school care to prepare Arizona’s young learners, ages birth to age 8, for success in elementary school and beyond.
