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!

Exhibitor Information

This Annual Conference is the largest gathering of Early Care and Education professionals from around the State, and draws nearly 3,000 attendees representing many constituencies. Our theme this year is ECE at the Crossroads: Awareness, Advocacy & Action! The theme reflects renewed energy in CAEYC to ensure all ECE professionals have a strong voice in decision-making at the State Capitol. 

And, since we are meeting in Sacramento, an additional day has been added to focus on legislative advocacy. On Wednesday, March 4, we will be conducting advocacy training, and then visiting legislative offices in the afternoon.  Wednesday evening will culminate in a Legislative Reception which will be attended by many State Legislators, Legislative Leadership, as well as representatives from our partner organizations and the Department of Education.  We hope you will be able to add your voice to our advocacy efforts by attending and participating in legislative visits with our members!

As you know, participation in the Expo offers you a great opportunity to connect directly with your customers in the ECE community, and to talk face-to-face with decision-makers in the industry. There is no better opportunity throughout the year to join a gathering of ECE professionals in one place than being at the CAEYC Annual Conference & Expo!
