The Week of the Young Child™ is an annual celebration sponsored by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). The purpose of the Week of the Young Child™ is to focus public attention on the needs of young children and their families and to recognize the early childhood programs and services that meet those needs. The 2018 Week of the Young Child™ was April 16–20 and it was a time to plan special activities at school and home with young children. NAEYC, the world’s largest early childhood education association, has nearly is committed to providing and promoting excellence in early childhood education.
Kangaroo Kids, a NAEYC accredited school, celebrated with a unique schedule of events. The kick off for Week of the Young Child was Music Monday! Teachers, children and parents will share their love of music. JoAnn Zagari music teacher will lead the classes in musical adventures. Parents are also invited to come share their musical talents! After the kickoff, children had special events all week in their classes, which emphasized the importance of literacy, staying fit, appreciating the arts and giving back to the community.
