On August 18th, community members gathered for ‘Early Learning and the Bottom Line’, a summit held at WSKG Studios.
The event addressed the economic impacts and benefits of early childhood education. What is our community doing to create sustainable solutions that support families? How can we strengthen our region by preparing children for success in education and career? Special guests included keynote speaker Jenn O’Connor, New York State Director of ReadyNation and opening remarks were offered by Assemblywoman Donna Lupardo.
The summit event was recorded and a one-hour program aired on WSKG. Here are web extra excerpts from the panel discussion.
