We are Parents Early educators and Owners Partnering for Learning in Early Education (PEOPLE) for the the Kids! Our organization is an alliance of the Early childhood education and care community; parents of young children in early education centers, the childcare workforce who strive to deliver an excellent early childhood education to kids, and the owners of centers, who take on the responsibility of owning, operating and opening their doors to our States children. While each of us provides a different role in supporting our kids, we all believe in one thing; every child deserves equal access to high quality early education and care, regardless of family circumstances. Unfortunately this is not the reality for our kids. We have come together to let New Mexicans know the facts about early education policy in our state, and to speak out together for a system that works for us and for the kids.
