Professionals in the field of ECE must be not only competent practitioners but agents of change. If our profession’s goal is to ensure the well-being of young children, then surely it is unprofessional to allow the status quo, which is harmful to children, to go unchallenged.
 
DVAEYC works with other AEYC affiliates throughout the state, mobilizing early childhood professionals, parents and the wider community to advocate for high quality early childhood experiences for every young child.
