State Rep. Elizabeth Fiedler (pictured on right) joined Department of Human Services Acting Secretary Meg Snead (center) during a visit to Children’s Playhouse at 2501 S. Marshall St. in South Philly on April 5.
The legislator and acting secretary toured classrooms and met with teachers and children. They joined with Damaris Alvarado (pictured on left) of Children’s Playhouse to celebrate the vital work of early childhood educators as part of the Month of the Young Child and highlighted Gov. Tom Wolf’s proposal to provide direct funding to Pennsylvanians for child care and other essential needs.
“Child care work is vital to child development, to supporting working parents, and to strong communities,” Fiedler said. “It was great to welcome Acting Secretary Snead to our district and advocate for this important funding.”
