Access to quality early childhood education is proven to be one of the most successful investments we can make. When we know that 90% of brain development happens by age 5, why do our state and federal governments neglect to invest in our children? Join us as we get passionate about our children having access to a strong start. The more people willing to dedicate their voice and energy to changing education from the earliest years, the more likely we can improve the entire educational system, our state, and our country.
