The Greater New Haven Chapter

of CTAEYC  Mini Conference

was May 4, 2024


From Sandbox to Society:

Using Play to Teach Diversity and Inclusion in Early Childhood

Featuring Keynote Speaker Wendy Simmons

"This event is funded by the Lab Schools Investments Initiative (LSII), a CT Office of Early Childhood (OEC) and Connecticut State Colleges and Universities (CSCU) partnership that uses ARPA funds to sustain and support Connecticut's Lab Schools, the Early Childhood Education workforce pipeline, and high-quality early childhood programming statewide".




We collaborate with the CTAEYC Public Policy Committee to monitor legislative and administrative policy developments that affect young children, their families, early childhood educators and early care professionals, on the local, state, national and international level. 

We strive to keep the general membership informed of policy developments mentioned above by written notices, email, telephone calls, and through membership mailings, as well as announcements at membership meetings. 

We collaborate with the CTAEYC Public Policy Committee to take responsibility for developing position statements, submitting testimony at public hearings, and participating in debates and meetings pertaining to public policy issues relevant to the Greater New Haven Region Chapter of CTAEYC and consistent with our goals and ideals.
