About the Event

Co-founders of WECAN, Brooke Skidmore and Corrine Hendrickson, will be  presenting via zoom a conversation that entails the support the child care professionals provide families as they navigate child rearing, how  the early childhood educators’ relationships with the children they care for  and educate build the foundation for all future social and academic success;  including the caring relationships that children 6 weeks and up have  with their early childhood educators, which can additionally be a buffer  for Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACES). The economic impact child care has on the employers that rely on high  quality, accessible, and affordable child care for recruitment and retention of employees. Finally, how all community members also benefit and the cost  to our state and what we CAN do together to create the change
