Councils Celebrate Young Children and Their Families

In April early childhood organizations, professionals, and advocates celebrate young children and their families by recognizing the importance of positive early childhood experiences, promoting early learning and healthy development of young children, and highlighting the role everyone plays in preventing child abuse and neglect.

This year, “Week of the Young Child” is April 16-20, 2018 but many extend this celebration all month long! April is also National Child Abuse Prevention Month. Across the state, Councils and their community partners will host events to celebrate young children and their families, including:
