2024 Week of the Young Child Series

Week of the Young ChildĀ® (WOYC) is an annual celebration sponsored by the National Association of the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) designed to focus public attention on the needs of young children and their families and recognize the early childhood programs and services that meet those needs. WOYC serves as a time to reaffirm our commitment to the importance of child experience in all types of early environments and promote critical foundational learning. Each day in the series is centered around the national themes for the week.

  • Music Monday
  • Tasty Tuesday
  • Work Together Wednesday
  • Artsy Thursday
  • Family Friday

Each session is also a collaboration with a community partner who also supports early learners, their families, and educators. Finally, most of the sessions feature a student-written book that aligns with the daily theme; including how both families and educators can engage children in hands-on activities related to our early learning standards.
