As we do advocacy work throughout the state, the one comment we frequently hear is that the early childhood community needs to speak with one voice. We understand that each of us brings a unique, important perspective to what is and is not happening for young children, families, and care givers throughout the state and each of those perspectives needs to be heard and considered as we try to find that one voice.
