Developmentally Appropriate Practice (DAP) is the foundation on which quality early learning is built. Join us June 9-10 for a one-of-a-kind virtual event featuring the leading voices in the field. This event will be 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 upcoming 4th edition of Developmentally Appropriate Practice in Early Childhood Programs.
DAP Symposium participants will hear directly from the authors on the “why” behind the changes that appear in the new statement, and have online access to 24 NAEYC-curated sessions presented by early learning industry thought leaders. Opening and closing sessions over the two days will share the summative recommendations for meeting the intent of DAP.
The NAEYC DAP Position Statement has been a guide post for the field since it was first released. Join the NAEYC learning community on DAP as we seek to ensure all young children have access to high-quality early learning.
