The Week of the Young Child: Recognizing Early Education

The Week of the Young Child: Recognizing Early Education

The Week of the Young Child (April 12-18) was established in 1971 by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) to bring public attention to the needs of young children. Early childhood years are the foundation for children’s success in school and later in life, thus The Week of the Young Child was created to include every community in the efforts to meet all of young children’s needs and their families. Each year there is a different theme, this year’s theme is The Week of the Young Child 2015: Celebrating Our Youngest Learners! Although NAEYC assigns the date and theme, each community and its different early childhood programs are responsible for scheduling events and engaging with young children and their families. Preschool 06 At IBA we have events and activities planned for this special week. We will be going to several brain building events including an online flashmob where over a 1000 children will sing in English and Spanish all over Boston!
