Parents and Families

Parents and Caregivers Are Essential to Children’s Healthy Development

Parents and caregivers make sure children are healthy and safe, equip them with the skills and resources to succeed as adults, and transmit basic cultural values to them. Parents and caregivers offer their children love, acceptance, appreciation, encouragement, and guidance. They provide the most intimate context for the nurturing and protection of children as they develop their personalities and identities and also as they mature physically, cognitively, emotionally, and socially.

That is why at the Florida Association for the Education of Young Children wants to serve as a trusted resource or parents and families to the latest information about children birth to age eight. We have several resources to assist you with understanding the needs of your developing child. Our resources include the latest information on:

  • Child Development
  • Quality Care and Education
  • NAEYC Accreditation
  • Workshops and Learning Opportunities

Let FLAEYC be your trusted partner!
