Welcome to MnAEYC-MnSACA!
The Minnesota Association for the Education of Young Children (MnAEYC) and the Minnesota School-Age Care Alliance (MnSACA) are professional associations of more than 700 members each. The members from our organizations are a diverse group of professionals representing early care and education and school age and youth programs across Minnesota. The members are teachers, youth workers, center directors, site coordinators, program managers, trainers, and advocates.
MnAEYC and MnSACA are proud state affiliates of these national organizations!
MnAEYC-MnSACA promotes quality in early care and education and out-of-school time programs and supports the leadership and development of early care and education and out-of-school time professionals.
We forward this mission by focusing on Professional Development, Program Improvement, and Policy & Advocacy.
Members network with one another, support each other, and learn together, while they grow as professionals.
Our Legislative Agenda Is Now Available
Each January, the MnAEYC-MnSACA Board of Directors approves a public policy agenda for the upcoming legislative session.
Our Policy & Advocacy Advisory Group has been crafting our agenda for several months and we always keep our goal, (every Minnesota child will be nurtured, healthy, eager to learn and prepared to succeed in school and life), in mind in our deliberations.
