The Colorado Association for the Education of Young Children (COAEYC) is the Colorado affiliate of the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC).
COAEYC is committed to promoting high quality education and support to all children and families. Additionally, we are here to advance the dynamic and diverse early childhood profession by supporting all professionals who care for, educate, and work on behalf of young children. We believe that educators should be valued and highly-compensated, and that their voices need to be heard. Click the button below to learn more about COAEYC.
