This November, ACS president Lori McClung and policy associate Cassie Gaffney, attended the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) Annual Conference in Orlando, Florida to provide technical assistance to 14 state affiliates around NAEYC’s Early Ed for President campaign.
NAEYC’s goal is to make sure that early learning and the early childhood profession is a priority issue for all presidential candidates during the 2016 campaign season.
ACS worked with 14 early primary and battleground states to identify opportunities to develop and enhance their existing electoral advocacy activities.
For nearly ninety years the NAEYC has been the voice of high quality early learning in the United States and around the globe. Among its many accomplishments, NAEYC is known for developing a global standard for early childhood programs and professional development for early childhood providers.
