The Week of the Young Child is a week-long celebration of early learning, young children, their teachers, families, and communities. Each day of the week is dedicated to a specific theme that highlights the unique talents, abilities, and needs of young children.
Step it Up (Texas Together): Become Zoom pals or pen pals with another early childhood center in Texas. Choose a school in a different part of the state. Kids can see other classrooms, learn about children who live in a different part of the state, and teachers can be inspired by one another’s lesson plans and classroom practices.
