STARGAZING: Jennifer Garner fans, read on. The “Alias” actress (and wife of the next Batman, Ben Affleck) is poised to attend a briefing on Capitol Hill this week.

Garner will appear Wednesday with Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee Chairman Tom Harkin (D-Iowa), ranking member of the House Education and the Workforce Committee Rep. George Miller (D-Calif.), Rep. Richard Hanna (R-N.Y.) and Education Secretary Arne Duncan.

Lawmakers at the event are slated to introduce a bipartisan proposal to expand early childhood education from birth to age 5.

It’s a return trip to the Hill for Garner, a mom of three, who was in Washington earlier this year to push for more funding for early childhood programs.
