NAEYC is Going Global!
To better serve the world’s young children and their teachers, NAEYC has expanded its role in early childhood education across the globe. NAEYC’s Global Engagement department works with governments and other large-scale systems to create guidelines to support early learning, as well as to support early childhood professionals throughout the world. The Global Engagement Department will adapt NAEYC’s resources, content, and expertise to offer culturally appropriate packages that support high-quality early learning. To see examples of our recent work or to see if NAEYC’s Global Engagement department can help you, visit our technical assistance page.
