Recognize and respect the unique value of every individual’s culture, family structure, language, race, gender, ability, religion, and economic class.


Take a holistic approach to understanding the impact of racism and inequity on the early childhood community. We will do this by:

  • Building collaborative relationships between families and early childhood professionals to support all children with equitable opportunities.
  • Recognizing individual backgrounds and our own biases (implicit and explicit) to meet children and families where they are and provide differing levels of support depending on individual need.
  • Providing training and support for early childhood professionals to foster success and maximize each child’s potential.

You are invited to join the Equity Circle of VAAEYC to our first "Perspectives" Field Trip to the American Civil War Museum.

We will be discussing the Civil War from the women's perspective. If you would like to attend please fill out this survey
