Power to the Profession
We’re building on guidelines, frameworks, and standards that currently operate across programs, organizations and states. NAEYC’s Power to the Profession initiative aims to establish a shared framework of career pathways, knowledge and competencies, qualifications, standards, and compensation that unifies the entire profession.
This will lead to a comprehensive policy and financing strategy for their systemic adoption and implementation.
AzAEYC hosted Power to the Profession Dialogue Day to engage members on this very important and ongoing initiative.
America for Early Ed
NAEYC launched Early Ed for President, our first non-partisan electoral advocacy campaign. America for Early Ed continues that successful initiative. With a commitment to expanding opportunity, supporting excellence and equity, and valuing early childhood educators, America for Early Ed serves as a mobilizing hub to ensure that candidates and policymakers from both sides of the aisle embrace early learning as essential. AzAEYC works closely with America for Early Ed to support advocacy and public policy in Arizona.
