South Florida Collaborative
We are your local early childhood chapter in South Florida of the Florida Association for the Education of Young Children (FLAEYC), which is affiliated with both the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) and the Southern Early Childhood Association (SECA).
We are here to advocate for the comprehensive well-being of all children through professional development and community networking opportunities in our area and beyond if called upon.
To be recognized as a FLAEYC/NAEYC professional community cultivating collaboration between practitioners, families, and stakeholders.
We are committed to promoting high quality early childhood experiences, continuous quality improvement through accreditation resulting in children becoming eager, lifelong learners.
With Respect, Integrity and Equality for all our members we will offer our Administrators Learning Community to foster facilitative leadership skills and dispositions among directors, owners, and administrators.
In collaboration with student chapters, we will continue to create a learning community for pre-service teachers to equip them with tools and strategies necessary to launch their pedagogical skills as lifelong learners. We plan to continue to provide professional development in response to the needs of families, practitioners, and the general community.
