EAGLE COUNTY — Carrie Benway has accepted the position of program development specialist at The Family Learning Center of Edwards.
The Family Learning Center provides a year-round, high-quality preschool (8 weeks-6 years old) program that builds a solid foundation of the skills and experiences that are the most predictive of future success in school and in life. Benway will focus on adding enrichment programs to the current curriculum through local partnerships and program design, development and increasing awareness of the high quality programs at The Family Learning Center.
“The Vail Valley is a generous, forward-thinking community, and I plan to join the conversation that focuses on the long-term cost savings and benefits that investing in early childhood programs bring to our community,” Benway said.
Benway has served on Eagle County’s Board of Education since 2007. She is excited that her new career will allow her to focus full-time on advocating for children and their families.
