HighScope Educational Research Foundation named Year-Round Platinum Sponsor for The National Association for the Education of Young Children
Washington, DC, September 6, 2018 — The National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), the leading association for professionals working with and on behalf of early childhood education, is pleased to announce HighScope Educational Research Foundation as a new Year-Round Platinum Sponsor.
HighScope is a premier research, development, training, and public outreach organization dedicated to early childhood education and the professional development of educators in the field. “This is a critical time for the expansion of high-quality early education, so it’s important that others see us — and we see ourselves — working as a community to promote the field and the children and families it serves,” said HighScope President Cheryl Polk. “The work of NAEYC and HighScope dovetails so completely that this partnership was an obvious choice.”
As a Platinum Level Year-Round Sponsor, HighScope will provide support for NAEYC’s online community forum, Hello, and for the association’s annual conferences, including the 2018 Annual Conference & Expo scheduled for Nov. 14–17 in Washington, DC.
“HighScope has been integral in helping NAEYC further its goals to support young children,” NAEYC CEO, Rhian Evans Allvin, said. We are thrilled to continue working on our shared mission toward access to high-quality early learning for all young children, and to support the early educators who serve them,” Allvin added.
NAEYC is the foremost professional membership organization committed to transforming the lives of young children and delivering on the promise of high-quality early learning. NAEYC represents tens of thousands of early childhood educators who care for, educate, and work on behalf of young children, birth through age 8. Learn more about NAEYC at www.NAEYC.org.
