We the People DC Takeover Recap

We the PeopleOn July 17th, SEEC was featured on the We the People DC Instagram handle, a community photo project that aims to share the lives and perspectives of people living and working in the district.

Through our posts we advocated for the early childhood field, which can still be undervalued in our society through posts about our teachers, and their thoughtful and intentional lesson planning. We also highlighted that  children, even infants, are never too young to benefit from learning in museums and other community spaces. At SEEC we witness the amazing capabilities of young children everyday, and were excited to share our student’s enthusiasm, bravery, perseverance, and motivation for learning throughout their school day.

During the takeover we were happy to engage with DC as well as, current and past SEEC families. Some of the comment highlights included:

“I was one of those kids a really, really long time ago! SEEC definitely shaped my life and how I look at and appreciate the world around me.”

“SEEC is such an incredible program for young children!”

“Used to work at SEEC – it was my favorite job ever.”

“My daughters went to SEEC and are now teenagers and I’m an alum SEEC board member. What a special place.”
