Welcome to the LANChapter website....a place to find out information that can help you in your professional life.
Our mission is to provide an organization for Early Childhood Professionals who can come together to share and explore ways to meet the needs of children and families that they work with in all types of care and educational settings. And to facilitate getting the needs of the professional met in any way we can.....through professional development, intervention, technical assistance, education, and advocacy.
LANChapter is here to help you connect to your colleagues, community and families regarding the field of early childhood. LANChapter is an independent chapter of the Pennsylvania Association for the Education of Young Children (PennAEYC). LANChapter takes into account the focus of both the state and national organizations but also is very much interested in supporting the efforts and focus of the local community. LANChapter was first incorporated in 1984 as a non-profit corporation under the laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. It continues to provide an opportunity to bring together the Early Childhood professionals in our surrounding areas to address the needs of
the field of early care and education. We consider our role as an initiator, organizer, advocate and supporter of all ECE efforts.
