North Central Florida Association for the Education of Young Children (NCFAEYC) is a local affiliate of FLAEYC and associated with the Southern Early Childhood Associations. As a board and member driven association, we provide various services to our members, and those within the community ranging from continuing education units to advocacy.


NAEYC's mission is to serve and act on behalf of the needs, rights and well-being of all young children with primary focus on the provision of educational and developmental services and resources. Our goal is to positively impact the early childhood education industry within our community through services and community involvement. We believe that early childhood education is of the up-most importance to children as it provides them with a foundation for life.
