Celebrating the Week of the Young Child

Celebrating the Week of the Young Child
Kristin Babcock

This week nationally marks the Week of the Young Child across the country. Shawnee Mission celebrates all early childhood educators and students and everyone who supports services that meet the needs of young children. Early learning plays a critical role in providing a foundation so each student can achieve their full potential. 

This is great timing as kindergarten kickoff events begin to be held in our elementary schools. Enrollment is open online for Pre-K and Kindergarten. Click here for more information.

The Week of the Young Child is sponsored by the National Association for the Education of Young Children and is observed to focus attention on the needs of young children and families and recognize early learning programs and services that meet those needs.
