The Central Rivers AEA Early Childhood Team recognizes the National Association for the Education of Young Children’s (NAEYC) Guiding Principles.We incorporate these Guiding Principles into our daily work as we assist families, childcare providers, teachers and administrators in their efforts to promote every child’s development. It is our goal that every child beginning at birth will be healthy and successful and be ready to learn as they enter Kindergarten.
