Public Policy

Our Work

In partnership with the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), MDAEYC is committed to developing a system of quality early care and education (birth to 8) and supporting appropriate regulatory, governance, finance, and accountability mechanisms. To achieve these goals, MDAEYC informs members and allies about local, state, and federal policies and advocates on behalf of the early care and education workforce and families with young children.
