Week of the Young Child

Join us for a fun-filled week celebrating early learning, young children, their teachers, families, and communities.

We know that many of you have questions about the upcoming Week of the Young Child (WOYC). We do not take lightly the tough and sometimes heartbreaking decisions educators are having to make during this difficult period. 

Knowing that circumstances are different for everyone during the COVID-19 crisis, we will focus on providing you with resources you can use wherever you are celebrating young children. Visit our site often for additional resources, support and inspiration.

Don't miss the #WOYC20 celebration, April 11-17!
