Today is the first day of our “Picture Wisconsin’s Future” Capitol Display in Madison. WECA will be sponsoring a display of photographs in the Capitol Rotunda from April 10-16 in an effort to bring awareness to the important role child care providers play in forming Wisconsin’s Future. We will enlarge several photos and create graphics to help legislators and community members see our future teachers/doctors/painters. Early education professionals will also be highlighted in the pictures. Legislators will learn about these professionals and their stories: how many children do they care for? how long have they been in the field? Visit our website for more information, or contact WECA by calling (1-800-783-9322, ext. 7239) or emailing Amy Schuster.
The display will also use statistics and personal stories to illustrate the important role that the R.E.W.A.R.D.™ WISCONSIN stipend and T.E.A.C.H. Early Childhood® WISCONSIN scholarship programs have in creating a highly educated and fairly compensated early education workforce.
