The Portland Metropolitan Chapter is a local affiliate of the National Association for the Education of Young Children. We are a community of practice that works to promote high-quality professional development for early childhood educators by infusing policy, research, and best practice in all that we do. We seek to be a high-performing, inclusive organization that is enriched by and continually grows from our interactions in the communities we serve.


As a member you join the largest national network of early childhood educators. You will gain access to new ideas in the field, receive conference and book discounts, and experience support from your colleagues.


Metro offers monthly gatherings where we bring members from the early learning community together to discuss both potential and barriers in our daily practice. Click on the link below to find out about our upcoming events!
