As a chapter, the Crystal Coast Association for the Education of Young Children works to advocate on behalf of children ages birth through 8 years old, their families, and early educators. Won’t you join us?

About CCaeyc

We have ongoing meetings for members to participate in professional development opportunities, plan community outreach activities, and/or learn more about the legislation and policies that affect the education of young children. Our chapter encompasses the following counties: Onslow, Jones, Carteret, Craven, and Pamlico.
