At The Day Nursery we excite the imagination of children on a day to day basis. Our dedicated staff works to that end each day. Our democracy is exciting too. Tomorrow we get to exercise our citizen participation by voting; while so many people in so many countries are deprived of that opportunity.
Taking your child with you is a teaching moment too. See this article about why parents are taking their children when they vote. Make sure your friends and family vote too. Make sure all the parents who drop off their kids vote. We are all in this together.
Our friends at NAEYC, the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), a professional membership organization that works to promote high-quality early learning for all young children, birth through age 8, by connecting early childhood practice, policy, and research. They advance a diverse, dynamic early childhood profession and support all who care for, educate, and work on behalf of young children.
Nearly ten months ago, NAEYC announced its own first-time electoral advocacy effort – the Early Ed for President campaign, designed to elevate the conversation around early childhood education and educators in the 2016 election cycle.
Since then, NAEYC members and friends, affiliates and partners all around the country have carried the Early Ed for President messages to candidates far and wide, making sure they know about the importance of early childhood education! And every one of the 105,320 (and counting!) likes and follows on social media mean our voices are growing.
We’ve heard both Presidential candidates talk about child care and early learning – and we want to see more when they, whoever is elected, takes office.
As you vote tomorrow, keep in mind you are voting for your children as well.
