About two months ago, I became a member of the WCCAA (Wisconsin Child Care Administrator's Association). This has become a highly valuable resource. It provided me the chance to brainstorm with field veterans and it facilitated the opportunity to get insight regarding life as a director, from someone outside of my employer.

Professional organizations provide one with the opportunity to network and develop as a Early Childhood professional. Personally, I wish more educators in this field would seek out the use of professional organizations. I'd be interested in learning why more do not. There are many professional organizations in this field, most of which are quite cost effective. Below, you will find a variety of links to professional organizations.


American Federation of Teachers
Institute for Educational Leadership
National Association of Early Childhood Teacher Educators
National Child Care Association
