AACTE understands the critical need for quality teachers at the early childhood level. The Association is committed to work to enhance the professional quality of early childhood education teacher preparation programs, and to ensure the continued professional development of early childhood teachers.

AACTE's policy paper "The Early Childhood Challenge: Preparing High Quality Teachers for a Changing Society" calls for major changes in how preschool educators are prepared to teach. It also recommends that all preschool teachers have bachelor's degrees in early childhood education.
