DCAEYC is proud to be part of the Under 3 DC coalition


For every child, the opportunity to reach their full potential.

All children deserve a strong beginning and a limitless future. Under 3 DC harnesses the voices and power of parents with young children, caregivers, and others to create transformative social change. Their efforts center on the people experiencing racial and economic injustice every day. They shine a spotlight on the need for more public investments to support families with infants and toddlers. Together, we can set the city on a path to creating and sustaining a high quality, equitable early childhood system.


Fighting for a system with equity at its core.

We will be successful because we are leading with our values, standing in our convictions and engaging in innovative strategies. So, we’re hopeful DC will become a place where equity starts at birth for every family.


The District of Columbia Association for the Education of Young Children (DCAEYC) is the DC Affiliate of the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC).


NAEYC is a professional membership organization that works to promote high-quality early learning for all young children, birth through age 8, by connecting early childhood practice, policy, and research.
