Thembi brings a fresh perspective to the field of early childhood education and can help ensure that voices of those newer to the field are heard throughout VTAEYC. Thembi opened her White River Junction Family Child Care program in 2020 and is currently pursuing her Bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education at Northern Vermont University. Thembi offers that one of her strengths is her ability to be a voice for those who don’t have one and that she is skilled at both talking with and listening to others. She has testified to the Vermont state legislature on the need for state investment in early childhood education to provide families with safe, developmentally-appropriate programs and support our economy.
