Every year, the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) sponsors the Week of the Young Child, seven days devoted to celebrating early childhood education. The 2013 Week of the Young Child is happening April 14-20 and this year’s theme to celebrate is Early Years Are Learning Years.
We invite you and your family to join in celebrating seven inspiring days of learning with your young child. Like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter and stay tuned here on our Learning Together blog as we explore the following topics this week.
