Dear TYC readers,
When early childhood educators unite and speak out with one voice, we can achieve anything. Here at NAEYC we work tirelessly to advocate on behalf of the educators, families, and young children who benefit from a strong early childhood education system . . . and we need your help. We know our members are our strongest advocates, and we are here to help you make your voice heard. NAEYC has several ways for you to get involved.

The Power to the Profession initiative is continuing its work to create guidelines, frameworks, and standards to unify the entire profession.
