AECPTA was established in 1936 as an organization for families in and around Arlington with children not yet in Kindergarten (including expectant mothers).
Our mission is to enrich the lives of children through parent education programs, community service projects that benefit the children of Arlington, and family activities that serve to develop a strong support system within our membership.
AECPTA is a chapter of the National PTA, the largest non-profit organization in the country. While PTA is typically seen as a resource for families with school-aged children, there are Early Childhood PTA groups like ours across the country. We believe a child's success during the formal school years begins with a strong foundation of confidence, social skills, self-esteem and knowledge of the world during the first five years of life.
Let us know if you have any questions and thank you for your interest in AECPTA.
