daeyc pat smallEarly Childhood Advocacy Day 2014 was a great success!!

High-quality early childhood advocates representing parents, educators, business leaders and administrators assembled at Legislative Hall in Dover, Delaware on Wednesday, May 7, 2014 to mark Early Childhood Advocacy Day.  Participants gathered to thank the Delaware legislature, Governor Jack Markell, Lt. Governor Matt Denn, and countless other governing officials for their continued commitment to insuring that all children in the First State receive a positive start in life, as well as to encourage each other and our elected officials to continue on, and complete the work that’s begun for our youngest learners.
