Early Learning programs across Metropolitan celebrate Week of the Young Child

Each year during Week of the Young Child – an annual celebration hosted by NAEYC (National Association for the Education of Young People) to spotlight early learning, young children, their teachers, families, and communities – our Early Learning programs across Metropolitan create a week’s worth of fun and engaging activities.

Our teachers and Early Learning staff did an incredible job creating themed experiences, from obstacle courses to slime experiments to smoothie recipes. We loved engaging our kids’ families – their first and most important teachers – in activities throughout the week. On Friday, we brought everyone together for family breakfasts and Week of the Young Child parades!

We shared photos throughout the week on social media (visit the #WOYC19 hashtag to see photos from organizations across the country!) and collected them here on our website.
