For the second time in a week, Progressive Conservative leader Jamie Baillie visited Kings County Saturday.
Baillie stopped at the Sept. 14 open house held at the Valley Child Development Association new headquarters in west Kentville with Kings North candidate John Lohr.
Baillie told board members he understands that the need for early intervention for children is a “frontline service.”

He said the benefits of accessing intervention early are proven. Baillie indicated his platform speaks to the need to ensure all children are ready to learn. His plan, if elected, he said, will be to invest in early learning programs with the goal of having a province-wide, comprehensive early learning program in place in 10 years.
The association is a non-profit, charitable organization that provides early intervention services for children with special needs from birth to five years of age in Kings County and West Hants.
Baillie also visited Kings South with candidate Shane Buchan before heading to Hants West to campaign with candidate Chuck Porter.
