DCAEYC is pleased to collaborate with the University of the District of Columbia, Early Childhood Education/Human Development Degree Programs, for a "Back to School Meeting". The meeting is for current and potential members of DCAEYC.

Dr. Barbara Willer, Lauren Hogan and Lucy Recio, members of the NAEYC staff, will present the draft position statement, "Advancing equity and promoting diversity in Early Childhood Education". They will facilitate a conversation to get feedback about this document.

All stakeholders who know the importance of the "early years as learning years" are encouraged to attend this important meeting. The ideas, thoughts and experiences of all of us who care for and educate young children in DC are valued, respected and needed to make sure our voice is represented in the feedback NAEYC receives about this draft Position Statement.

There will be a short Business Meeting for DCAEYC members in good standing, from 6:00 pm - 6:30 pm regarding a matter approved by the DCAEYC Board and an opportunity to help at the Hospitality Table at the NAEYC Annual Conference in November.

CDA candidates, students in ECE degree programs, parents and family members and all ECE lifelong learners are invited to attend.


The draft position statement is included in this message. Please try and read it before the meeting. We recommend you bring a copy of it to the meeting with you notes and feedback.
