The National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) is committed to providing valuable experiences for all attendees of our Annual Conference. To better support and facilitate the growing number of international attendees, NAEYC has developed two special language tracks designed to explore topics of interest to both Spanish- and Mandarin-speaking registrants, in their home language. The language tracks provide valuable experiences to our international conference participants, and diverse content for NAEYC members.
