Kennebec County Sheriff Ryan Reardon, Augusta Deputy Chief of Police Jared Mills, Sen. Roger Katz, R-Augusta, and Rep. Matt Pouliot, R-Augusta, toured Augusta’s Magic Years Center, a high-quality early learning program, on Sept. 29.

The Magic Year Center consists of five classrooms: two preschool classrooms providing Head Start and private and subsidized care for children ages 3 to 5; and three infant/toddler classrooms providing Early Head Start and private and subsidized child care for children ages 6 weeks to 3 years old.

The tour will end with the law enforcement leaders and legislators reading a book, “Police Officer on Patrol” with some of the preschool students.

Reardon and Chief Mills are members of Fight Crime: Invest In Kids, a national anti-crime organization of more than 5,000 law enforcement leaders and violence survivors calling for smart investments in America’s children.
