There are more than 35 million children from birth
through age 8 in this country. The early years are a crucial time
for their growth and development and a time when we help children
prepare to succeed in school and in life.
April 22-28, 2007, is
Week of the Young Child, a time to recognize the needs of young
children and thank the adults involved in their education and care.
Parents, teachers, caregivers and other adults play important roles
in the lives of young children, and Week of the Young Child
celebrates their efforts.
Early education programs -- including child care, Head Start,
preschools and elementary schools -- provide crucial learning
experiences for many young children. Supporting these programs is
the right choice for kids.
Every adult in this community has opportunities to make a
difference, from volunteering at a local program to supporting
efforts that help more young children benefit from quality early
education. Week of the Young Child is a good time for all of us to
acknowledge the needs of children and work together to build better
futures for all children.
