STAMFORD - Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) was in Stamford this afternoon, where he visited the Childhood Learning Center to talk about the importance of early childhood education.

At the center, Murphy talked about President Barack Obama's plan to make pre-kindergarten available to all children, regardless of their socio-economic status. Murphy says a pre-kindergarten education sets children up for success later in life.

Murphy says he's committed to bringing universal pre-K to Connecticut by making spending decisions that invest in education.
