NAEYC promotes high-quality early learning for all children, birth through age 8, by connecting practice, policy, and research. We advance a diverse early childhood profession and support all who care for, educate, and work on behalf of young children.
NAEYC is grateful to Congress for taking an important, bipartisan step to provide that support with the passage of the CARES (Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security) Act, signed into law today.
Patty Smith Hill was instrumental in the formation of early childhood educational practice in the United States. Many of her ideals still constitute the foundation for educating and socializing young children.
New research finds no correlation between state regulations and child care supply. Rather than rolling back necessary regulations, increasing public investment in child care is the key to building quality child care supply and improving affordability.
