The White House is a busy place – there is always a steady stream of people flowing in and out, meeting with officials to make a case for their cause. Yesterday, Cecilia Muñoz, director of the White House Domestic Policy Council, had a meeting about the PreK for All plan with some very important advocates ages 5 months to 5-years-old.

Member organizations of the Strong Start for Children campaign collected over 30,000 notes and pieces of artwork thanking President Obama for his deep commitment to early learning, which the children delivered to Ms. Muñoz.

The White House gets a LOT of mail – but I can assure you that most of it doesn’t arrive in little red wagons or include artwork made by children across the country.  We’re very excited to move forward with our efforts to make the President’s important early learning initiative a reality for these children!
