April 1-7 is the Week of the Young Child


Today educators know more than ever about the importance of children's earliest years in shaping their learning and development. Yet, never before have the needs of young children and their families been more pressing.

The Week of the Young Child®, April 1-7, is a time to recognize and commit to ensuring that all children experience the types of early environments—at home, at child care, at school and in the community—that will promote their early learning.

Join the annual event celebrating early learning, young children, their teachers and families.

The National Association for the Education of Young Children offers ideas to celebrate and encourages the use of #WOYC2023 in social media posts to highlight creations and celebrations in recognition of this week. For more information, visit NAEYC Week of the Young Child.
