Four Years of Grandes Comienzos
Grandes Comienzos means "Great Beginnings" and reflects NAEYC’s wish for all young children, in the United States and around the world. Grandes Comienzos focuses on ensuring that children and families whose home language is Spanish have access to high-quality programs. This track provides the early childhood community with access to sessions in Spanish and English on topics concerning young children, their families, and early childhood education throughout the Americas.
