Developmentally Appropriate Practice (DAP) is the foundation on which quality early learning is built. The NAEYC learning community joined us June 9-10, 2021 for a one-of-a-kind virtual event featuring the leading voices in the field. This event was an opportunity for anyone involved with early education to explore the rationale and consequences to their work from the recent revisions to the DAP Position Statement and the 4th edition of Developmentally Appropriate Practice in Early Childhood Programs.
DAP Symposium participants heard directly from the authors on the “why” behind the changes that appear in the new statement. Attendees have online access to 24 NAEYC-curated sessions presented by early learning industry thought leaders, available through June 30th on the NAEYC Learning Lab.
The NAEYC DAP Position Statement has been a guide post for the field since it was first released. Join the NAEYC learning community in seeking to ensure all young children have access to high-quality early learning.
