    Administrative history

    The Alberta Association for Young Children (AAYC) formed in 1970 as a provincial association with the goal of uniting parents, educators, volunteer board members, and professions to promote the development of services to young children and their families. The Association held an annual conference, alternating the location between Edmonton, Calgary, and Red Deer.

    A board of directors comprised of ten members of the Association, and the officers of the Society, including a President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer, governed the Association. In pursuit of their objectives, the Association worked as a lobby group, disseminated information to the public and government regarding the interests of young children, advocated for the interests of young children, and published a quarterly journal entitled Altachild.
