Nurturing Equity Leaders: Where We Are and Where We Need to Be
Young Children is NAEYC's award-winning, peer-reviewed journal focused on educating children from birth through third grade.
NAEYC has put the power of our publications to work to spur knowledge, reflection, and actions to answer key questions about equity in practice. In our first digital-only issue, Young Children Summer 2021 includes chapters from the newly published NAEYC book, Advancing Equity and Embracing Diversity in Early Childhood Education: Elevating Voices and Actions. You’ll also discover content found only in this issue, such as recommended children’s books and professional resources, a profile of an administrator and staff deeply involved in equity work, a sample guide for facilitating staff discussions, and a glossary of key terms. Additional topics in this issue include embracing partnerships with informal learning settings, extending preschool learning beyond the classroom, using conversational strategies to foster science vocabulary, and cultivating meaningful questions to inspire children's thinking.
