MnAEYC Week of the Young Child
Share |

The Week of the Young Child™ is an annual celebration sponsored by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). The purpose of the Week of the Young Child™ is to focus public attention on the needs of young children and their families and to recognize the early childhood programs and services that meet those needs.

The 2017 Week of the Young Child™ is April 24–28

As we know, a child's earliest years are critical in shaping his/her early learning and healthy development. And like never before, the needs of young children and their families are more pressing.

The Week of the Young Child is a time to be reflective of our practice and ensure that each and every child experiences the type of environment - at home, at child care, at school, and in the community - that will promote his/her early learning.

You can celebrate in so many different ways, big and small. Visit www.naeyc.org/woyc for an event planning handbook and activity ideas.
