Early Childhood Teachers

Task Force

A partnership between

DCAEYC and the

Washington Teachers' Union (WTU)


The WTU/DCAEYC Early Childhood Teachers' Task Force's vision is that all of the District of Columbia's young children are successful in school and in life, as a result of Early Childhood Teachers participating in high-quality, intellectually stimulating, robust, and developmentally-appropriate training and professional development experiences that provide them with the knowledge, skills, and dispositions needed to close the Achievement Gap.


The Task Force believes that a highly trained, engaged, research-focused Early Childhood Teacher workforce is the key strategy to close the Achievement Gap. The role of the Task Force is to perform the following functions:

  • Develop an Early Childhood Teacher Collaborative

  • Advocate

  • Facilitate

  • Support

  • Promote
