This is great news for our sector and a great example of good public policy work that so many change makers across our state have been working on behind the scenes. Engagement in the upcoming legislative process is vital as we continue to share the importance of early childhood care and education and that we are #EssentialNotExpendable.
Keep an eye out for an email from us with an opportunity for you to join in with advocating for our professionals across Arkansas, so we can continue to provide the best care and education for children and families.
