Many of you were with us when we launched WE3: Women Elevating Early Education last spring. The First Lady of Virginia, Pamela Northam was with us at The New E3 School to kick off the initiative.
Governor Northam's Year in Review will be given out this evening after the State of the Commonwealth. An image of the First Lady of Virginia visiting with our children on the nature playground will be featured. Many of you may not know this, she worked side-by-side with our architect, builder and me to create a place that would stimulate a child’s imagination and creativity more than a traditional playground. WE created an open-ended outdoor play area for children to make discoveries, explore and interact with their environment. This approach connects children back to nature and stimulates creativity and imagination. I like to refer to it as our “old school” playground. It reminds me of how I grew up exploring, running, climbing and using my imagination outside.
WE wanted you to be the first to know that our school is featured. WE are excited that the First Lady of Virginia has made expanding access to high quality early education a priority. Our cause could not have a better spokesperson or leader. If you haven’t toured The New E3 School, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let’s set up a visit.
