WOYC: Kick-Off Saturday
Saturday, April 1st
Join Kidzu and The Nest in celebrating the Week of the Young Child (April 3-7)!
“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. NAEYC first established the Week of the Young Child® in 1971, recognizing that the early childhood years (birth through age 8) lay the foundation for children’s success in school and later life. The Week of the Young Child® is a time to plan how we—as citizens of a community, of a state, and of a nation—will better meet the needs of all young children and their families.” Read more.
Each day, we’ll be sharing resources here on our website and on our social media channels based on the daily themes! For an overview of the week’s themes, visit: WOYC Overview.
