Join With Us to Support the Children of the Philippines
To help children in the Philippines cope and understand the traumatic event of Typhoon Yolanda, the CAEYC Membership Committee, spearheaded by CAEYC Vice President Dr. Shu-Chen Jenny Yen, developed a children's social story called "After Typhoon Yolanda" translated into one of the native languages, Tagalog.
CAEYC is seeking donations to help print, publish and ship the books to Early Childhood Educators in the Philippines. Your donation is tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. Two ways to donate: download the form or make an online contribution.
View the "After Typhoon Yolanda" English and Tagalog versions. Share this information with your friends, family and colleagues.
Thank you for your donation!
We hope you enjoyed your time at the 2014 Annual Conference & Expo as we all learned, laughed and connected with one another. We are looking forward to seeing you at the March 2015 Conference & Expo in Sacramento, CA.
Many of the conference presenters submitted their workshop handouts to be placed on the conference workshop schedule. Workshop handouts that are available are in pdf format next to each workshop description.
Relive the memories!
