Rhian Evans Allvin on NAEYC
May 13, 2022
One of the best ways to make other people happy is to be happy yourself.
-Author, Gretchen Rubin

Here is part of the farewell message that Rhian Evans Allvin wrote as she completed her time as chief executive officer of the National Association for the Education of Young Children:

"In reflecting on the past nine years, we have accomplished transformative work together: We have overhauled and rebranded our affiliate network and membership structure; we have streamlined early learning program accreditation; we have transformed our publishing model. Our exponential growth in grant funding has been the catalyst to expand our policy and advocacy footprint—making NAEYC and our affiliates decisive leaders at state houses and in Washington, DC.

The Unifying Framework for the Early Childhood Education Profession has the potential to fundamentally transform the structure of the early childhood education system, centering early childhood educators as the most essential component and finally recognizing you with practice autonomy, professional salaries, health insurance, and retirement benefits. Our focused work on equity, building on decades of work that has come before us, is decisive and unequivocal but approached with humility in confronting our progress and shortcomings. Finally, building on NAEYC’s core strengths sit our new 'Advancing Equity in Early Childhood Education,' revised 'Developmentally Appropriate Practice,' and revised 'Professional Standards and Competencies for Early Childhood Educators' position statements."
