5. I firmly believe in the value and effective support that we offer to all early childhood professionals through their participation in the various programs made available to them, as well as the community partnerships cultivated on behalf of children and their families. It is exciting to me to be participating once again in our mission to advocate for children, families, and ECE professionals in the field. The icing on the cake is being able to work alongside the wonderful ECE professionals and dedicated board members and committee chairs. There is no greater reward than working with committed professionals with a cause that we believe in - improving the early care and education of young children in PA.
