Public Policy Agenda

In order to fully deliver on the promise of high-quality early learning for all children, MDAEYC believes that our country must prioritize and implement a bold family and values vision that is rooted in the early years by:

  •  Defining and fully funding access to high-quality early childhood education at scale, regardless of state or setting
  •  Ensuring that all families can choose among options that meet high-quality standards and afford the early learning setting that is right for them
  •  Ensuring that early childhood professionals are diverse, effective educators and leaders working within a compensation and recognition system that supports their excellence
