As a manager of a childcare center and veteran early childhood teacher, I know firsthand the importance of early childhood education, having experienced high quality environments created for young children. Granite Staters have the opportunity this November to support candidates with outstanding expertise in supporting children to ensure all NH’s children get the best start to life. The building blocks for lifelong success are laid in the earliest days of learning. Quality early childhood education develops a love of learning, setting children up to thrive in the classroom and beyond. Investing in early childhood education not only supports children, but also NH’s families and communities by providing peace of mind for parents that their children are safe and learning by those who understand child development while parents work or attend school.

I was pleased to see Save the Children Action Network endorse Christine Tappan’s candidacy for State Senate District 17. Tappan brings a wealth of knowledge and experience on the most pressing issues facing children. She’s dedicated her career to supporting children, serving as the state’s top official on child-related issues at the Department of Health and Human Services and a child welfare specialist. New Hampshire’s children need senators in Concord like Christine Tappan who will blaze the trail to ensure all children are set up for success. Let’s put politics aside, prioritize our children and vote for Christine Tappan on November 8.
