We're all in

View the recording of the Power to the Profession Task Force event to share the Unifying Framework for the Early Childhood Education Profession. Celebrate our shared commitment, learn more about the recommendations, and discuss the next steps for making our vision a reality.

Involve others

Join us as we build a future early childhood education profession where children birth through age 8 are well-served by an effective, diverse and fairly compensated workforce of professionals.

Help spread the word! Share the Unifying Framework with your networks and encourage them to consider some key questions:

  • What do these recommendations mean for early childhood educators in our community?  
  • What systems or structures will need to change, be built, or are already in place to support these recommendations?  
  • Who else in our community needs to know about the Unifying Framework?  
  • What are two next steps we can take to move this work forward?

Tell us what you think. Share your reflections via email.
