During the past three years NAEYC affiliates from across the country participated in a national dialogue focused on reorganizing to better serve members wherever they live and work.  The AEYC Board members of Cincinnati, Columbus and Dayton welcomed this conversation.  We shared our vision and mission and considered how to improve our service to you, our valued members. 

On September 1, 2017, our three local affiliates merged to form the Southwest Ohio Association for the Education of Young Children (SWOAEYC) as a state level organization. We are committed to serving you across our 16 county geographic region. With NAEYC, we are hard at work to extend your member benefits and provide more opportunities for member growth and engagement. 

We are committed to strengthening our Board as a high performing inclusive organization.  We will work closely with our chapters in Columbus and Dayton to listen well and give you greater value and more benefits.

We are here to serve you!  You can contact us at
