The Week of the Young Child runs from April 12th- 18th this year, and is an annual celebration to focus attention on the needs of young children and their families, and to recognize early childhood education programs that serve their needs. The National Association for the Education of Young Children, the world’s largest early childhood education association, hosts this celebration each year. Local communities around the nation are hosting events celebrating young children this week.
