Welcome to the Early Childhood Association of Oklahoma.
If you are not a member of ECAO, we would love for you to join. When you join ECAO, you also get memberships to NAEYC (National Association for the Education of Young Children) and SECA (Southern Early Childhood Association), with all the benefits of all three organizations. Click the membership tab above for more information.
The MECA training scheduled for December 5th at Rose State will be held as long as Rose State does not close campus. Please call Rose State to verify if they are opened or not prior to coming!
