Happy Women’s History Month! 🥳️

The theme for AECA this year is Linking Hearts and Minds: Early Childhood Connections

This month we will be celebrating stories from our past presidents about women who who helped shape their experience as early childhood professionals. They were able to help grow our early childhood field here in Arkansas and I hope that continues to happen today with the women in YOUR life.

Today’s share comes from Dot Brown, President of Early Childhood Services, Inc.

When I came to Little Rock from South Louisiana, I was hired by Maggie Reynolds, day care consultant for the State Department of Public Welfare, as a licensing specialist. Maggie Reynolds told me, not ask me, that I would become a member of AACUS (now AECA).  So I see her as the person who was most influential in setting me on the pathway to becoming an involved member of AECA and to get my degrees in early care and education. Because of my involvement in AECA I have connected with members who have become life-long friends.  So thanks to Maggie Reynolds for her influence on my education and my wonderful friendships. 

Who are the women in your circles who have inspired you to become a better early childhood professional? Email president@arkansasearlychildhood.org with your stories.

Be sure to keep coming back to our socials to find more stories throughout this month and I look forward to reading yours.

Looking forward to connecting!

Natasha Kile
AECA President
