I Am Early Ed

I am…a babysitter teacher!

To change their lives, you have to start with yours.

The early childhood education field is full of hardworking, passionate individuals who are driven by a passion for Hoosier children, but who are often undervalued.

We’re ready to change that. And we hope you are too.

#IAmEarlyEd is a public education campaign to connect Indiana’s early education professionals with the tools, resources, and encouragement they need to continue their education and raise the level of professionalism and child outcomes in the field.

We believe that there is an attainable, affordable next step in every early childhood professional’s educational pathway. To achieve that vision, we need YOU to be a part of this effort. Teachers, caregivers, directors and educational institutions all have a part to play in the #IAmEarlyEd campaign.
