Global Engagement

NAEYC's footprint is found worldwide through membership, content and global projects.

To better serve the world’s young children and their teachers, NAEYC expanded its role in early childhood development globally. Our Global Engagement department works with governments and other large-scale systems to create guidelines to support early learning, as well as to support early childhood professionals throughout the world. We also adapt NAEYC’s resources, content, and expertise to offer culturally appropriate packages that support high-quality early learning.
