Become active with your Iowa AEYC membership!

The Iowa Association for the Education of Young Children (Iowa AEYC) is a state affiliate of the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). Our Iowa state affiliate is comprised of fourteen local geographical chapters that have service delivery areas (SDAs) that cover the entire state of Iowa, and one virtual interest chapter.

Chapter participation is open to all members and is not limited to geography or professional background, members may participate in as many chapters as they wish.

Our virtual interest chapter structure will allow our members to network, learn, and have opportunities with other early childhood educators with similar interests.

Our local geographical chapter structure enables all of our members to network and learn with other early childhood educators living in their same or neighboring communities and opportunities to get involved in the issues affecting the state and the counties. Local chapters focus on serving members in the local communities where early childhood professionals live, work, and learn.

WELCOME Family Child Care Chapter, Iowa's first statewide interest-based chapter.
