Anyone interested in promoting the purpose of KAECE may become a member upon payment of annual dues. All members of KAECE are also members of the Southern Early Childhood Association (SECA).
KAECE membership is open to all early childhood including students and professionals who work with and care for young children and who provide education and resources for these individuals.
KAECE has become an affiliate of Southern Early Childhood Association (SECA) as of August, 2016. We did not qualify for NAEYC’s affiliate requirements so KAECE is no longer an affiliate of NAEYC.
To become a member go to the SECA website and complete the online registration. You have the choice of two: SECA, KAECE, and local chapter one-year membership options. These are: $45 for professional membership OR $25 for student membership. Student rate applies to CDA and KY Commonwealth Credential students too.
Through our commitment to professional development and networking, Kentucky Association for Early Childhood Education values and supports young children and their families and early care and education professionals.
**There is a new option for child care programs: SECA group membership. See below for more information**
