We were honored to host a forum in November with the leading voices of early childhood education. Among them Kim Pattillo Brownson, vice president of policy and strategy at First 5 LA, and Dianne Hackett, a faculty member at Loyola Marymount University. Camino Nuevo CEO Ana Ponce moderated the discussion, which focused on the benefits of early education and improving access to quality programs. A group of special guests toured our nationally-recognized preschool and learned how our bilingual, play-based approach is making a difference. "We are extremely proud of our program and the work we're doing to give kids the solid foundation they need to succeed in school," said Alicia Garcia, the preschool director.
