“Preschool helped all three of my children to sit, listen and learn in kindergarten! They learned about the joy of learning and were hungry for more! These programs helped them in their social skills which is another important part of learning! Because of these programs they are and were not afraid to speak with teachers and professors as they grew! They had the confidence and strength to go after what is important!” ~ Judy
Moms are speaking up loud and clear -- affordable, high-quality early learning programs, like preschool and childcare, are critical to overall health and development of our kids. That’s why it’s no surprise that MOMentum is building for early learning in Santa Fe and you can be a part of it!
**Click here to join Santa Fe families and early learning advocates on May 1st at 10:30am for an important conversation on early education and care with renowned early childhood education expert Dr. Deborah Phillips!
With moms now serving as three-quarters of the primary or co-breadwinners, parents need safe, enriching places for their kids so they can go to work; and kids need safe enriching places so they can thrive.
Thankfully, we’re in the midst of what Dr. Phillips calls "the most serious national conversation in decades about the current state of early care and education..." This is a great chance to learn about what’s happening with early learning locally and nationally while connecting with other parents.
