Association for Early Learning Leaders
Executive Director’s Message


It is my joy and privilege to lead this amazing organization! Since 1984, the Association has been a community created to empower and equip owners, directors, and administrators of early care and education programs to be exceptional leaders and business professionals. Our leaders work together to promote best practices in the highest quality programs; providing early care and education to young children across race, religion and socioeconomic boundaries.

In the Fall of 2012, we re-branded from NACCP (National Association of Child Care Professionals) to the Association for Early Learning Leaders– pursuing our vision of a well-connected, more involved organization of leaders, where ideas are shared, relationships are developed, and innovation is inspired.

Now is the perfect time to join this amazing community of inspired early learning leaders!



Lori Buxton
