South Sound Association for the Education of Young Children
We are an organization of early childhood professionals representing family child care, preschool and infant/toddler center caregivers, school age providers, Head Start, Resource & Referral, elementary school teachers and others who work for young children and their families in Thurston, Mason, Lewis, and Grays Harbor counties.
We are the local affiliate of the Washington Association for the Education of Young Children and the National Association for the Education of Young Children. We provide scholarships for early childhood education to our members and support other organizations that also support the early care and education of young children.
Former Governor Chris Gregoire recently recognized Margie Reeves for her tireless work on behalf of children and families in Washington State over the past 35 years. In addition to being the first Head Start Director in Thurston County, Margie has served statewide as a member of the Governor's Task Force on Child Care and the Children's Budget Coalition and was State Advocacy chair for Public Health and Safety Networks. She was a founding board member of Child Care Aware of WA (formerly statewide Child Care Resource and Referral Network); a founding member of the Children's Alliance, the Washington Association for the Education of Young Children, the Child Care Coordinating Committee, and the Early Learning Action Alliance. Thank you, Margie, for all you have done for children and families in our state!
