Focus Area: Early Childhood
Featured Speaker: Sonia Manzano, Actress on Sesame Street & Author
The positive impact of early childhood education on child development has been proven. One of the best indicators of whether a child could go to college is the simple act of a parent reading to a child. Added to this is the belief that when a family is provided the tools and resources to support the child on an early educational journey, that family also learns and grows. Parental involvement can pave the way to greater family stability and an increased interest in education. How will our community maximize this interest and provide needed support resulting in benefits for the entire family? Early intervention in childhood development is an effective tool in keeping a child on the best path forward. How do we strengthen those interventions? This speaker panel will identify the best tools and resources as APM continues to invest in children and in their families.
