Early Education & Care
Being informed about your child’s early education is important. Below are some websites that share information about early education and care.
The National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) has a great “for families” section providing information on what to look for in finding the best fit and high quality early education and care for your child, how to find accredited child care programs. You can also find early education news from around the world, publications by leading authors and researchers, and ways to take part in advocating for quality early education. NAEYC is the largest professional organization for early educators.
