Link to Early Childhood Education Council Website


The Early Childhood Education Council (ECEC) is a council for Pre-K to grade 3 teachers and acts on behalf of young children and their teachers to promote excellence in education.


The ECEC encourages members to contribute opinions on matters relating to the education of young children. The Council also solicits input from other childcare professionals and fosters liaisons between these people and professional educators. The Council sponsors an annual conference designed to glean new and exciting ideas from teachers; the conference also facilitates the sharing of such information among members. At the regional level, the Council sponsors events and activities to encourage participation among members, thus allowing members to share information about early childhood education issues and resources.


The ECEC publishes Issues, Events and Ideas newsletter and the Early Childhood Education Journal.
