WECA membership is valuable: It provides professional development opportunities and resources, advocacy power and networking. We are the state affiliate of the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), the largest professional membership association of early childhood educators in the United States.


When you join WECA, you become a member of both WECA and NAEYC, connecting you with a professional association with opportunities for local, state and national professional development, networking and other valuable benefits.
