The Week of the Young Child™ (WOTYC), celebrated annually since 1971, is hosted by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). The aim is to focus public attention on the needs of young children and their families, and to recognize the programs and services that meet those needs. Today we know more than ever before that early childhood years (birth through age 8) are key to laying the foundation for children's success in school and later life.
CES will host a variety of events for young children and families to celebrate Week of the Young Child/Brain Building in Progress Week. These events are sponsored by the Coordinated Family and Community Engagement (CFCE) grant funded by the Massachusetts Department of Early Education and Care (EEC).
