The National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), a leading voice for high-quality early childhood education, is deeply concerned about the current federal fiscal debates. Children and families are not made of separate components of health, early care and education, nutrition, and other basics. Our issue-driven advocacy is conducted directly with policymakers and through technical assistance, materials and other support to our affiliates and others working on shared public policy goals and efforts.
To best serve young children VAECE is an active participant in public policy discussions. The public policy committee researches and advocates on issues that effect the care and education of young children in Virginia.
