The Iowa Association for the Education of Young Children works to build public awareness about early childhood and early childhood issues through advocacy and outreach.  

Iowa AEYC promotes high-quality early learning for all children, birth through age 8, by connecting practice, policy, and research. We advance a diverse, dynamic early childhood profession and support all who care for, educate, and work on behalf of young children.

The Iowa Association for the Education of Young Children (Iowa AEYC) is committed to the creation and implementation of an early care and education system in Iowa that will ensure every child, beginning at birth, is healthy and successful. The first 2000 days are critical to a child's future well-being, ability to learn, and overall life success.

In response to the latest research on brain development and how children learn, and what we know about return on early childhood investments, we fully support the need for access to high-quality programming and an educated workforce for each and every child in our state, prenatal to age eight.

All young children thrive and learn in a society dedicated to ensuring they reach their full potential.
