Week of the Young Child
The Week of the Young Child is April 20-27th and is a time to recognize that children's opportunities are our responsibilities and to recommit ourselves to ensuring that each and every child experiences the type of early environment--at home, at child care, at school and in the community--that will promote their early learning.
