NAEYC Week of the Young Child

Years of working in Early Childhood Development created many memories for me.  One of my favorite times each year was the National Association for the Education of Young Children’s (NAEYC) celebration of children.  Their website states:

“The Week of the Young Child™ is an annual celebration sponsored by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), the world’s largest early childhood education association, with nearly 80,000 members and a network of over 300 local, state, and regional Affiliates.”

“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.”

During this time each year, individual child development centers and programs provide activities and events for families and their children.  When I worked with Military Families, this time was especially rewarding.  Even today, I have a special place in my heart for military families who look at child care as an integral part of their mission. Keeping children safe and surrounded by compassionate, loving caregivers in an early learning environment is an incredible responsibility and honor as we support our military service members.

Please take a moment to learn more about NAEYC and their valuable contributions in your own community.  Here’s some information from their website.
