Last week, I had the opportunity to speak at the 40th Annual North Carolina Head Start Association's Training Conference. The event was a great success, and I enjoyed being a part of it. This was the first time in several years that NCHSA has had their meeting in Raleigh, and we were happy to host them!
This year, the topic for the Conference was "Weaving our Future from the Fabric of our Past." NCHSA is doing just that! Head Start is always working towards improving early childhood education and finding the best ways to prepare children for success. This means working with not only children, but also parents, early childhood educators and administrators, and legislatures. Head Start is the only national program for young children, and they are working in all 100 counties of North Carolina to ensure that young chidren are provided with the educational experience they deserve.
I know how much the early childhood education system has evolved since my kids were in preschool, and can only hope that these changes continue to come!
