GMALL Presents – Vermont Conversations – Childcare and Early Education in Vermont

August 6 @ 5:30pm-7:00pm


Green Mountain Academy for Lifelong Learning (GMALL) is excited to present the next program in their new series, “Vermont Conversations: Imagining Our Future”. This series intends to spark civil discourse as we delve into topics crucial to our state and envision a viable future together. The topics this year in the four-part series include healthcare, business, education, and drug addiction as it relates to crime.

The third in the series is “Childcare and Early Education in Vermont” moderated by Betsy Rathbun-Gunn, recently retired after 40 years in early childhood education. Last year, the Vermont Legislature made history when they passed into law a first-of-its-kind comprehensive childcare bill. What are the far-reaching effects of the programs this legislation supports? How can local communities maximize their impact on local families and schools? Panelists are:

Dimitri Garder, co-founder and CEO of Global-Z International, Inc.
Laurie Metcalfe, Executive Director, Northshire Day School
Aly Richards, CEO of Let’s Grow Kids
Danny Sawtelle, Wealth Management Advisor, Northwestern Mutual

The series is sponsored by The Keelan Family Foundation. Registration is $22 per person. For more information or to register, please call our office at 802-867-0111 or visit greenmtnacademy.org.
