Sandra Woodall has been appointed by Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin to a three-year term on the Kentucky Child Care Advisory Council. Woodall serves as a team leader in 4C for Children’s Quality Programs department and leads the 4C for Children Northern Kentucky team based in Covington.
Her wealth of experience and expertise in the early childhood field has landed her one of the spots on this Advisory Council reserved for those from the private sector who are knowledgeable about education, health and development of children. Others on the 18-member council include child care center directors, family child care providers, parents with children in child care, and related government department representatives, representing all regions of the Commonwealth.
“I am excited to be a member of this group and be a voice at the state level for the parents and child care providers 4C for Children serves,” says Woodall.
The council is attached to the Kentucky Cabinet of Health and Family Services to address issues that affect child care centers and family child care homes. The council also creates an annual report each year to address the availability, affordability, accessibility, and quality of child care to be reviewed by the secretary of the Cabinet, the governor, the Legislative Research Commission, and the Interim Joint Committee on Health and Welfare.
“4C for Children has been serving child care providers and families in Northern Kentucky for more than 25 years,” Woodall says. “I’m grateful to have the opportunity to share those two decades of early childhood education, knowledge and experience with representatives and senators from across the state to help inform future child care decisions and policies.”
