All Presenters Have a Role to Play!


The Nashville Area Association for the Education of Young Children has signed on and aligns with NAEYC's Advancing Equity in Early Childhood Education position statement. We are excited for the opportunity to have you present at our upcoming conference and ask that you take a moment to read over the position statement and look for connections between the statement and the goals of your presentation. No matter what you’re focused on, there are opportunities to draw a line connecting your area of expertise and our collective commitment to advance equity in early childhood education.
