The Congresswoman toured a Play 2 Learn classroom at Lovin Elementary School and heard from educators on how the program helps young children learn and prepare for elementary school.
“I greatly enjoyed the opportunity to visit Lovin Elementary to observe and celebrate Gwinnett County’s Building Babies’ Brains initiative,” said Rep. Carolyn Bourdeaux. “This funding will support children from underserved communities and help get them ready to succeed in kindergarten.”
