Over the years, NAEYC’s editors have developed a set of style rules and preferences we follow during the editing stages of production. Accommodating those preferences now, as you write, will simplify production and minimize the time and effort you may have to invest in reviewing edits and answering queries later.
NAEYC’s editorial style is based on The Chicago Manual of Style, 16th ed. NAEYC’s reference dictionary is Merriam Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary.
