2nd Annual Rally for Kids!


On a day when hundreds of early childhood supporters gathered in the State House for Early Childhood Day at the Legislature, showing the full force of support for Vermont's youngest children, advocates flooded the Cedar Creek Room in the afternoon for the second annual Rally for Kids! After hearing from passionate speakers—Rep. Ann Pugh, Sen. Becca Balint, Sen. Richard Westman, Winston Prouty Center Executive Director Chloe Learey, Sunshine Daydream Childcare owner Ellen Drolette and Kayla Becker of Bennington—calling for increased investments in Vermont's early care and learning system, the rally culminated with a flash mob performance of the "Something Beautiful" anthem for kids. Together, our unified voice was heard in the State House, in every corner of the state and in every community in between!
