The Nevada Association for the Education of Young Children (NevAEYC) is the state affiliate organization of the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). NevAEYC promotes high-quality early learning for all children, birth through age 8, by connecting practice, policy, and research. We advance a diverse, dynamic early childhood profession and support all who care for, educate, and work on behalf of young children.


NevAEYC supports the America for Early Ed campaign!  With the voices of America’s parents, educators, and allied community members leading the way, this campaign will collectively work to ensure that candidates and policymakers from both sides of the aisle embrace early learning as a “must,” with a commitment to expanding opportunity, supporting excellence, and valuing early childhood educators.
