As early educators, CTAEYC believes strongly in our responsibility to protect the health and safety of our communities however we can. 

In doing so, we have made the decision to postpone all of our Saturday Academy and Platform Academy Professional Development events for March and April, until later this year.


We are working with locations and presenters to secure new dates and will update you soon with

additional details.

The Connecticut Association for the Education of Young Children 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, educate and work on behalf of young children.
