The Week of the Young Child is coming April 22-28, 2012! This week long awareness campaign sponsored by the National Association for the Education of Children (NAEYC) focuses on the needs of young children and their families and recognizes early childhood programs and services that meet those needs. In anticipation of this special week, we would like to continue to thank our many supporters who make our mission possible.
