At the Library
The Week of the Young Child is an annual celebration sponsored by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), the world's largest early childhood education association.
The purpose of the Week of the Young Child is to focus public attention on the needs of young children and their families and to recognize the early childhood programs and services that meet those needs. The library hosted an art show on the second floor last week to celebrate. The young artists and their teachers did a beautiful job creating a variety of artwork.
Washington is fortunate to have the many wonderful day cares and preschool centers it has to serve our young population. So many families depend on their services during their work week, and it should never be taken for granted. During my monthly visits to many of these facilities, I get to see firsthand how much work and energy it takes to be successful at what these providers do for kids every day. Their motivation inspires me to continue my efforts at the library to provide good programs in getting toddlers and young preschoolers ready to read.
Thanks to all people who care for kids! You are paving the way for a bright future for the graduating class of 2028 and years beyond.
