Welcome to your association Louisiana.

The Louisiana Association for the Education of Young Children (LAAEYC) strives to promote and support professional development and evidence-based best practices in early childhood education.  


We are a proud affiliate of the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), and we invite your participation and membership in our program.

Early care and education Professionals connect with like-minded professionals, committed to early childhood excellence for Louisiana.

We seek to elevate and unify early childhood professionals so together we can serve families through leadership, advocacy, and professional development.


Our goal is for every child and family to have access to quality services for every early childhood professional to be highly respected, skilled, fully supported, and equitably compensated for the valuable role they play in the lives of children and families.
