The Association for Childhood Education International (ACEI) was founded in 1892 to promote early childhood education in the United States and elsewhere. The collection contains the records of the ACEI as well as the International Kindergarten Union and the National Council for Primary Education, ACEI's predecessor organizations. Also included are a broad range of document types from operating records to publications, audio-visual materials, and three-dimensional objects such as toys. In addition the collection contains the personal papers of numerous leaders of the ACEI. Among the many subjects addressed in the collection are early childhood curriculum, teacher education, the history of pre-kindergarten and kindergarten education, and the development of pre-school education in countries other than the United States.
