Week of the Young Child - April 24th through the 28th



April 23rd through April 28th is the Week of the Young Child and here at UCDC, we plan to celebrate all week with families and children. 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. The purpose of this week-long celebration is to focus public attention on young children and their needs. It is also to recognize early childhood programs that meet the needs of young children.

This year, NAEYC has created a weekly theme for this celebration and we will be creating fun and interesting activities for your children all week. We are also inviting you to engage in thematic activities with your children at home throughout this week and don't forget to share your fun with your child's teacher. We'd love to hear how you celebrate!
