"As a member of two early years networks, I am a big advocate for using the Early Years network portal. This resource has been a bit of dream for many years – that one place to go to connect with each other and share resources with other early years groups. It is great to see this dream come  to fruition and see so many people using it. The more of us that are on there, the better it will become, so I highly recommend signing up if you haven’t already and check out all of the resources, start sharing stories and connect with other networks across the state."
