We envision a community
where every child's potential is realized.
We have over 350 members, and with only 2 part-time staff, we rely on our Governing Board of Directors, committees comprised of community partners, members, and volunteers to make our mission become reality. We couldn't do what we do without each group of supporters!
For over 75 years UAEYC has been the premier professional association for early childhood professionals in Utah. As an affiliate of NAEYC, we work to support research-based, developmentally appropriate practices and advocate for all in our field. We re-incorporated in 1996 as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
We empower Utah's children by engaging and inspiring our early childhood professionals. Through leadership, advocacy, community & state-wide professional development, and scholarships, we are moving Utah's early childhood workforce toward career pathways that create commitment, inspire passion, and strengthen programs that allow young children to thrive.
Your support and contributions will enable us to meet our advocacy goals and strengthen career pathways for early childhood professionals in Utah. We need you!
