We invite you to learn more about the importance of early childhood education by viewing THE RAISING OF AMERICA and participating in the discussion. A second Community Dialogue will be held on Saturday, April 30 from 10-12 at Library 21c.

raising of america

At the first Pikes Peak Community Dialogue, we examined the critical importance of the early years and the role quality, affordable childcare plays in the well-being of children and their families. The next Community Dialogue will look at ways other communities have addressed the lack of quality, affordable childcare by figuring out new solutions to address the high cost of such programs, so families, employers and the whole community can reap the benefits.

 Please register for our next Pikes Peak Community Dialogue . . .AND BRING A FRIEND! The event is free, but pre-registration is requested so that enough facilitators are available.
