California Association for the Association for the Education of Young Children (CAAEYC) is excited to share a new service, CAAEYC Connects, with the early care and education community in California. CAAEYC Connects: Your Connection to ECE Resources, is a one-stop website with shared ECE resources to support ECE teachers, program owners and administrators, workforce development professionals, and supporting agencies. Subscribers have exclusive access to national, state and local resources such as articles, toolkits, regulations and savings. Resources are updated regularly and kept current with emerging needs, such as coronavirus, including a Covid-19 Toolkit, California specific information, recovery and reopening and more.

The CAAEYC Connects website is supported by Google Translate and the documents for download are available in Spanish, as well as English.
