I was a member years ago but for no reason at all, I fell off. I’m so so happy I came back and rejoined the network because I am getting so much needed information and I have a great support group with being apart of this lovely knowledgeable community of professional like minded individuals.

A rare group of women that's truly professional, NO JOKE!! These woman are exceptionally gifted to unify women with all facets of help in childcare and more.

Truly, a wonderful organization filled with brilliant women. A wonderful blessing to be a part of such a well organized, and put together Association that can bring so many different trainings, and opportunities for providers to become empowered and more knowledgeable in the childcare field.

I Love my SPNA Family because we are so much more than a Professionals Network Association. I take pride when I say we are a wonderful organization of committed professional educators with many years of experience in preparing children for Kindergarten Readiness. We support our members both personally and professionally and are an extended family as we work together to make a difference in the lives of the children and families we serve.

I joined this group over 5 years ago . This group is educational, supportive, and informative. I find it helpful and friendly.

SPNA is an awesome network that provides great personal and professional relationships.

After joining SPNA 5 years ago I have obtained many Early Childhood Education credentials and my Masters degree. The members motivate and inspire each other. Being in the Association make me feel more professional in the ECE field.
