Networks - Early Childhood


The NAGC Early Childhood Network promotes high quality, developmentally appropriate and differentiated learning for young children exhibiting giftedness from birth through age 8. This includes children from underserved populations, i.e. twice exceptional, cultural, ethnic, linguistic, and socioeconomic groups, who have high ability, advanced cognitive development, or the potential for advanced learning experiences and academic achievement.
