WHAT IS WEEK OF THE YOUNG CHILD?
Week of the Young Child (WOYC) is a national celebration. A time to recognize the importance of early learning and early literacy. And a time to celebrate the teachers and policies that bring early childhood education to young children.
This is our annual opportunity to reach out to everyone in the Delaware Valley and ask them to make the time to recognize the needs of young children, and thank the many adults involved in their education and care — from parents to teachers to caregivers who play such important roles in the lives of young children.
We encourage early childhood programs and organizations throughout Southeastern Pennsylvania to plan noteworthy WOYC events. These events are designed to bring each respective community together to promote early literacy and learning, recognize early childhood teachers in each community, and influence public policy makers locally, state-wide and nationally to make early childhood education the best it can be.
