The Open Discussion Forum is THE place for NAEYC members to have conversations, make connections, and share online!

All online discussions in Hello happen here in the open forum.  The Open Forum is co-moderated by the Interest Forum Facilitators, and the individual interest forums maintain separate space in Hello for resources, announcements, and member rolls and contacts.

  • "Recommend" Posts you "Like"

    Do you like to hit 'like' on Facebook?  My niece complains all the time that her uncles (and her mom) just 'like' too many things in Facebook.

    While we always encourage you to jump right in and say something--sometimes a "recommend" is all you have time for!
