The newly enacted Arizona immigration law raises many concerns and questions including its potential impact on children, families, and early childhood education services. NAEYC's leadership is considering how the association might best contribute to the national discourse that has been prompted by the legislation.
In addition, an informational session about these issues has been added to the program of the June 2010 National Institute for Early Childhood Professional Development, which will be held in Phoenix.

Founded in 1926, the National Association for the Education of Young Children is the largest and most influential advocate for high-quality early care and education in the United States.
