Thank you for this opportunity to write in support of the Early Childhood Educators of Vermont. Our state is fortunate to have a network of agencies, homes and private centers that provide care, nurturing and education to the state’s youngest citizens. The persons who work with our children in these settings are mostly women, and though the work they do is arguably the most important work done in our state, they typically are not well-paid, minimum wage being the standard for these jobs.
