WhatyouWEEK OF THE YOUNG CHILD

This is the year to add advocacy to the mix! 

 

Whatever your program or AEYC Affiliate is planning for WOYC, this is the year to include the big picture. Why? 

...The new statewide Pre-K for PA campaign is bringing more public recognition than ever before to the need for high quality ECE for all of our three and four year olds. 

The goal of Pre-K for PA is to get early childhood central to the platform of every gubernatorial candidate, then fund it at a level that would allow every preschooler access to high quality early childhood education by 2018.

There are so many ways to celebrate! Here are some ideas for every day of the week:

For a fuller description of each day's suggested activity, go to our calendar. If this isn't enough, see a summary of NAEYC's ideas, or go to their WOYC page.  

Whatever you decide to do, please keep the following in mind:   

  • Use the Pre-K for PA logo; encourage everybody to sign up.

  • Distribute Pre-K for PA buttons, window-clings, car magnets, posters, etc.

  • Take advantage of a pre-written press release to get publicity from your local media outlets.

  • Spread your news through social media. Post to Pre-K for PA and use common Twitter hashtags (i.e., #PreK4PA, #PreK, #IAmPreK, #PAGov).
