Review for Texas Association for the Education of Young Children, Austin, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars

TAEYC is the state organization from the National Association for the Education of Young Children and they advocate for increasing the quality of programs available for children from birth to age eight. I've presented at the TAEYC annual conferences and the board members are very welcoming, helpful and knowledgeable. It is a pleasure to work with other early childhood professionals who are dependable and energized in their volunteer roles. Great synergy with this group!

TAEYC has provided great support from the state level to the local affiliates. The board members are very responsive to emails and providing suggestions that help our group move ahead.

Many people ask if they can join at a local level- because they have to become members at a national level, then it filters down to state and then into local affiliates.

What is unique about this organization?

I appreciate that TAEYC keeps their focus on doing what is best for children and how to support that vision by enhancing the skills of adults who work with young children.
