Why Members Value NMAEYC

“I believe in making a difference in New Mexico. I know that as a member of NMAEYC I have the opportunity to help young children, families, and other professionals better early childhood education in our state.”  

- Amanda, Albuquerque

“When I was in college I had a professor who was amazing and drilled into us that we needed to belong to a professional organization and NAEYC was the one. So I did, and when I moved to New Mexico, I also joined NMAEYC.  I was elated to join and got a wonderful card with some lady’s name, "Bobbie" then I ended up at a school where I met “Bobbie” and it was like meeting the Queen of Early Childhood, herself.  I was truly so excited as a young teacher to have met Bobbie, a long-time leader of NMAEYC, who is certainly the central nervous system of NMAEYC. What a treasure NMAEYC members have had…”
