We ALL have a part to play-Advancing Equity In Early Childhood Education

“Our goal is to nurture a more diverse and inclusive generation of young children who thrive through their experience of equitable learning opportunities in early learning programs. We aim for each child to ‘express comfort and joy with human diversity; to increasingly recognize injustice; and to have the will and the skills to act against prejudice.’ We find ourselves pressing for the same for each adult in our nation today.” –We Stand Together, A Message from Ann McClain Terrell and Rhian Evans Allvin, NAEYC

As we struggle with the horrific death of George Floyd and the institutional racism that continues in our country, Children’s Village urges you to read this message from the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) and NAEYC’s position statement “Advancing Equity in Early Childhood Education.”
