Public Policy

ORAEYC is a leading voice for high-quality early childhood education supported by a diverse, dynamic early childhood profession.  With Americans of all political, geographic, and demographic backgrounds, we are coming together to demand investment in high-quality early childhood education and early childhood educators, because we know that will make America brighter, stronger, and more competitive.
