Power to the Profession: Dialogue Day

Power to the Profession is a national collaboration to define the early childhood profession by establishing a unifying framework for career pathways, knowledge and competencies, qualifications, standards and compensation. 

This initiative is built on a two-year time frame for establishing a unified framework for the early childhood education profession. Once established, a robust policy adoption and financing strategy will begin.

Throughout the two-year process, NAEYC is actively seeking input on the Power to the Profession initiative for Decision Cycles 3, 4, and 5

We invite early childhood professionals in Arizona to join us for discussion and feedback.
