Webster dictionary defines, advocate “as one who pleads on behalf of another”. As early childhood practitioners this is what we do. We work diligently to support children, families, and our community. Here are some additional resources to help us learn more about the systems that has an impact on the work we do. I urge others to share as well. Also, you can sign up for their newsletter.March 26, 2017 at 2:17 am#2166
