I would like to welcome you to Pierce County Association for the Education of Young Children’s new webpage. We have set some lofty goals as a board for the 2015-2016 year. In addition to our Leadership Academy and As a Teacher Grows conference, we have planned some new ways to interact with our membership and the community at large. Be watching for information on upcoming Coffee and Conversation events around current topics of interest such as DEL standards alignment, Week of the Young Child community event in April, a job fair this spring, and some work around public policy and advocacy. Our board meetings are the third Monday of every month, except December, and are open to the general membership. Please join us and share your ideas for the direct you want our organization to take!
