Representatives from Grenada recently traveled to Jackson to show their support for early childhood education.
Members of the Mississippi Children’s Collaborative participated in the Early Care and Education Capitol Day on Feb. 26.
Those attending included local childcare providers Theresa Rawson Procella, owner and director of Lake City Kids, Rosie Wiggins, owner and director of A Ray of Hope Pre School and Child Care Center, and Grenada Community Foundation board member Pat Woods.
The women visited the Capitol to support the passage of legislation currently before the House and Senate that would provide voluntary pre-kindergarten education for all 4-year-olds. The education would be delivered through a collaborative system including private child care providers, Head Start and the public school systems.
