DAP Webinar: The New NAEYC Position Statement

Join Nicol Russell, an at-large member of the NAEYC Governing Board, for a DAP webinar.

“From DAP to DEEP”: Exploring NAEYC’s new Position Statement on Developmentally Appropriate Practice is an online discussion that will reflect the intimate connection between the revised NAEYC position statements on DAP and Advancing Equity in Early Childhood Education.

Participants will learn about the three considerations of DAP – context, individuality, and commonality – and how it can help early educators to take action to advance equity, racial justice, and social justice.

This event is a collaboration between AzAEYC and SAZAEYC.
