Advocate for Early Childhood Education with NVAEYC today!

Public Policy Statement

NVAEYC believes that every child, birth through age eight, has a safe, healthy environment with caring people who promote their well-being, meet their individual needs, and support learning through play. In collaboration with NAEYC, state, and local organizations, NVAEYC informs members and the community about relevant local, state, and federal policies as well as communicates with legislators, advocating on behalf of young children and the early care and education workforce.

As educators, we know the positive impact that quality early childhood education programs have on all young children.  We need YOUR help to remind local, state, and federal legislators of the need for accessible, affordable, and quality education for our country’s youngest learners.
