Memorial celebrates Week of the Young Child

Memorial Child Care, a community service of Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center, celebrated the Week of the Young Child to recognize the needs of young children and thank educators and others involved in building better futures for all children. 

Week of the Young Child (April 22-28) was celebrated across the country by hundreds of local organizations working to improve opportunities for all young children.

Memorial Child Care held special events daily for the children who attend their program.  An art show highlighting the creativity of those children was being held all week in the hallway outside the center.

"Early learning experiences are crucial to the growth and development of young children," said Memorial Child Care Center Director Amy Stojanovski.  "Week of the Young Child is a time when we can all work to recognize the importance of providing early learning opportunities and working to build better futures for all young children."

Week of the Young Child, sponsored by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), is an opportunity for early childhood programs across the country, including child care and Head Start programs, preschools and elementary schools, to hold activities to bring awareness to the needs of young children.

Across the country, young children and their families depend on quality education and care, which help children get a great start and bring lasting benefits for our society as a whole.  Week of the Young Child is a time to recognize the people, programs and policies that are helping to build better futures for all children.
