We currently offer 3 types of membership options. The regular and student memberships will grant you access to the NAEYC website and all the resources and benefits it has. Each membership is one year long. You are required to have a student ID number and an official university email to be eligible for the student membership – non-degree seeking students must get a regular membership. A comprehensive membership lasts one year and has the added benefit of six cutting edge books each year.

Standard Membership Benefits:

  • Reduced registration fees at NAEYC-sponsored conferences and seminars, including the world’s largest early education conference.
  • Opportunities to participate in various insurance plans designed to meet your personal and professional needs, including professional liability insurance.
  • Access to the Members Only area of the NAEYC website.
