TYC is for preschool teachers. It is full of practical ideas that teachers can implement in their classroom immediately. The magazine covers all topics—math, science, literacy, social, physical, emotional, and creative skills—in each issue.
TYC publishes articles and activities that are practical and research-based. A teacher can read an article on her break, gather materials for the activity, and then the next day try it out with the children in her program.
TEACHERS MAKE DECISIONS
From our surveys, we know that the many teachers who do read this magazine also have a significant say in the books that are purchased for their program. We always include children’s books in our magazine, and we often include professional development resources for teachers. And when the teacher can buy a book for her program, she’s going to be looking for recommendations and books that have been used in tried-and-true activities—which is what TYC offers.
DIRECTORS HAVE BUYING POWER
Although intended for preschool teachers, the readership includes many program directors and teacher educators. The program directors reading the magazine are often the ones who are making decisions about what to buy for their program. They have buying power, and they read our magazine.
ECE IN THE NEWS
Right now, early childhood education is getting more attention from lawmakers and more coverage in the news than ever before. This is a prime time to support high-quality education for children and build professional development for teachers.
TYC articles are short and to the point, but they’re also eye-catching. We spend a lot of time considering visuals and what will work best to show best practices. Because of it’s visual nature, ads that appear in TYC are more likely to be remembered.
Here’s what readers are saying about TYC.
“I love the information and the pictures. Teaching Young Children is very interesting and educational.”
