Children who are not prepared for school are less likely to graduate from college and more likely to need special education, depend on social services, have health concerns, and commit crimes. Let’s Grow Kids is a campaign to educate Vermonters about giving children the support and preparation for success in life. Discussing early childhood initiatives:

  • Julie Coffey, Building Bright Futures Early Childhood Advisory Council
  • LouAnn Beninati, Vermont Birth to Three
