League of Women Voters host “Early Childhood in Leelanau” forum

From staff reports

The Early Childhood Needs and Services Committee of the League of Women Voters Leelanau County (LWVLC) will host a forum entitled First Things First: Early Childhood in Leelanau—Supporting Community Resilience on Wednesday, Oct. 4, at 6 p.m. in the Community Room in the lower level of the Government Center. The later start time of this LWVLC monthly forum was chosen to allow working parents and professionals to attend. The doors open at 5:30 p.m. and pizza and salad will be served while it lasts. All are invited.

Our guest speaker will be long-term Leelanau resident, experienced early childhood specialist, and renowned child care consultant Maggie Sprattmoran. Sprattmoran will speak to what has worked well in our community on the early childhood front and what needs attention. She will also share ideas for a community action plan intended to strengthen our caregiving for Leelanau’s youngest children and their families.
