Who are GAEYC members?
GAEYC members are a network of professionals who want to make a difference for young children. They want to learn more about early childhood and connect with other early childhood professionals. The board and membership reflect Georgia’s diversity with representation from many cultural and ethnic orientations; urban, suburban and rural perspectives; a full range of early care and education professions; as well as parents, advocates and individuals concerned with quality education for Georgia’s children.
