Senator Gerald Boudreaux hosted a workshop on May 10, 2016, to discuss the process and support staff in place that will assist daycare centers that participate in the Child Care Assistance Program (CCAP). Ms. Christine Duay, Director of Early Childhood for the Lafayette Parish School System, along with Ms. Paula Granger, Child Care Resource & Referral Agency, were the subject matter exports at the workshop. They explained the reasons for the implementation of the new system and emphasized that accountability (Act 3) and an education path was needed to prepare children from birth to five years old. Senator Boudreaux commended Christine and Paula on an excellent presentation and the resources that are available to the community. Ms. Denise Lavergne, TLC Creative Blessings Daycare, offered to take what she’s learned from the workshop and bring it back to other day care owners in St. Landry Parish.
