Week of the Young Child

Monday, April 24 - Friday, April 28, 2017

Week of the Young Child is a yearly event spearheaded by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). It is a time to celebrate young children and the uniqueness that goes along with educating our youngest citizens. It's also a GREAT time to advocate for the profession of early care educators.

The WCCAA Advocacy Committee is challenging all members to call their legislators to invite them to see exactly what you do at your center. Invite them in to show them the work you and your staff are doing to educate and care for our children.

Let us know how it goes for you! Take pictures! Share your visit with your local newspaper, Facebook page, or newsletters! WCCAA would love to share your stories on our Facebook page as well!
