Giving Thanks, Early Childhood Education Style

As I head into a weekend of celebrations with family and friends (and football), I want to give thanks for some of the things that have made a mark on me professionally this year. I am thankful for…….the dedication of hardworking early childhood professionals in this region.

… the creativity and new thinking that are valued at 4C for Children.

… the 23,000 professionals come and learn at 4C each year.

… the emphasis on children’s social and emotional development as equally important as their ability to perform on “academic” tests.

… the continued support of Step Up To Quality and STARS for KIDS NOW, despite suffering state budgets.

… the passion, the energy, and the spirit of all those I interact with, in a tireless pursuit to make things better for children and families.

… that articles like this are written.
