Over the past three years, your expertise, passion, and commitment to supporting early childhood educators has been the foundation for Power to the Profession. Informed by your input and feedback, the Power to the Profession Task Force has reached a consensus on a shared framework to advance the early childhood education profession.
Please RSVP to join the Power to the Profession Task Force March 9th, 2:00 - 4:00 PM ET, either in person in Washington, DC or online to celebrate our shared commitment and the release of the Unifying Framework for Early Childhood Educators and the Professional Standards and Competencies for Early Childhood Educators.
For those of you who will be joining by livestream, we hope you'll continue our collective engagement by organizing a watch party with fellow early childhood educators and allies. Check out our new Watch Party Tips for ideas and steps you can take for a successful and fun event.

The Unifying Framework for the Early Childhood Education Profession is the result of extensive and intentional engagement with thousands of early childhood educators, administrators, employers, higher education faculty, and partners across states and settings. The framework represents the historic consensus of the 15 national organizations that make up the Power to the Profession Task Force on educator roles and responsibilities, aligned preparation and pathways, professional compensation, and a supportive infrastructure with shared accountability. It also calls for significant increases in federal and state investments to help ensure the 40 million U.S. children, birth to age 8, are well-served by an effective, diverse, well-prepared and well-compensated workforce of professionals.
See you on March 9th!
