The North Carolina Early Education Coalition is bringing babies, parents, early educators, and other early childhood advocates to Raleigh to call attention to what babies and families in North Carolina need to thrive. When we support our youngest children in having the opportunity to fulfill their potential, we create the best outcomes in health, education, and economic well-being for everyone in North Carolina. Strolling Thunder: A Think Babies™ NC Advocacy Day is a FREE family-friendly event that will take place during the national Week of the Young Child. Please register for this event now! Join us for: Remarks from state and national leaders, parents, and early education providers. Storytime with legislators. Family-friendly activities, crafts, and playtime. Meetings with your legislators, on your own and/or as part of a group. An opportunity to share your story and make your voice heard for children and families in North Carolina!
