This is an exciting time for early Childhood in Vermont. We will be addressing Race to the Top and the Early Childhood Public Awareness campaign among other topics at Turrell Fund Day. Our presenters will no doubt answer the questions you have around these initiatives, but to make sure of that, we are allowing ample time for Q&A after formal presentations. Come prepared with questions, or email them ahead of time. We will collect these questions and ask them of the appropriate speaker at the event.
