Nebraska Celebrates the Young Child 2015
To celebrate the national Week of the Young Child, Nebraska AEYC partnered with other statewide organizations to plan and implement the Nebraska Celebrates the Young Child Day 2015 on April 16, 2015. The day began with opening comments from John Cavanaugh, COO of the Holland Children's Movement then moved into a keynote address by Dr. Sam Meisels, founding Executive Director of the Buffett Early Childhood Institute. There were presentations on current legislative bills that affect children and families and an overview of the Legislative process. During lunch, participants heard remarks from a panel of Nebraska State Senators. After lunch, we walked over to the capitol for small group tours, including listening to floor debate and visits to Senators offices. The day was a big success and we want to thank everyone who helped in the planning as well as all of those who attended!
