GAYC Winter/Spring 2014 Newsletter is here!

GAYC Members!

I can’t begin to express to you what an honor it is to be an intimate part of such a passion filled and purpose driven organization!  I have always loved my work with children, families and the individuals that work in concert to improve the quality of their lives and access to quality of care but never in my wildest dreams could I have imagined that I would be a part of that very important work at this level.  The past three months have been filled with excitement, energy and change and that is only the beginning.   Always your cheerleader signature

You will find lots of interesting articles and information in this edition of the newsletter.  Make sure you note the dynamic new changes for the conference September 25-27, 2014 as we “Raise the Bar!” Also be on the lookout for more information about our intermediate and advanced state wide training initiative as we help support the CCR&R’s and the Quality Rated movement across the state. There is so much momentum building in our ECE field right now, you want to be sure that you are a part of the movement.  You can always stay informed of the new and exciting initiatives and programs coming out by liking our Facebook page and bookmarking the GAYC website.

I can’t wait to get a chance to engage with each one of you and I hope that you will find a way to get involved with GAYC.  We want your involvement and need your skills and passion to continue doing  great work within the state of Georgia.  Together we make a tremendous impact.

Please know that I am always available to hear your thoughts and feedback.  We appreciate your commitment to our children and families!
