Public Policy

CTAEYC is a leading voice for high-quality early childhood education in CT, supported by a diverse, dynamic early childhood profession. We are deeply respectful of the enormous contributions the ECE field has provided in the wide range of settings of which our field is composed. Along with Americans of all political, geographic, and demographic backgrounds, we are coming together to demand investments in hiqh-quality early childhood education and early childhood educators, because we know that will make Connecticut and the United States brighter, stronger, and more competitive.
