New name, new look… same important mission!

In 2017, ACCA became AECEA – Arizona Early Childhood Education Association. Though we retain the same mission and goals, this new name better represents the important work that member centers do for Arizona’s Children and Families and communicates the importance of ECE in the education continuum.
