Blog post: "Ideas for Week of the Young Child"

Our team is always so thrilled to spotlight the Week of the Young Child® (April 6-12, 2024). It is our mission to promote social and emotional development and foster resilience in young children, and to support the resilience of the adults caring for them. We work with so many programs across the country, and it would be impossible to express the amount of gratitude they deserve. To all our friends out there taking care of young children, we celebrate you and wish you a fun Week of the Young Child®.

We offer some activity ideas to help you celebrate all week long, and ones that can contribute to the social and emotional well-being of young children, their families, and you!
