“There also will be booths with information available to provide attendees with resources they need,” Wilson said. “ECI, Anderson County WIC, ‘The Bookman’ Charlie Snoek,” and the Palestine Public Library are just a few groups being represented.”
In emphasizing the importance of Saturday’s event, Wilson said that the quality of care and opportunities for young children was one of the hot topics of the current legislative session.
“I want better for today’s kids and families,” she said. “By educating parents, caregivers and people in the community about childcare for young children, things can be better for them.”
Over 100 people are expected to participate in Saturday’s conference, but space is not limited for the event. Those interested in attending may sign up by calling Champions for Children at 903-723-5567 or may register at the door from 7:30 to 8:30 a.m. Saturday.
