March 25, 2014 — In a few weeks, hundreds of organizations across the country, including Houston-based Collaborative for Children, will draw focus to the needs of young children. During the Week of the Young Child, April 6-12, public attention will focus on the early years of children, and how Americans can better meet the needs of young children and their families.
The Week of the Young Child was established in 1971 by the National Asssociation for the Education the Young Children, the world’s largest organization working on behalf of young children. Each year, childhood programs are recognized for their services to young children and their families.
Collaborative for Children president and CEO Carol S. Shattuck is available to elaborate on the Week of the Young Child, the issues affecting young children and how local communities can take part.
