The week of April 16-20 was the Week of the Young Child, which is an annual celebration hosted by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). Childcare centers celebrated early learning, young children, their teachers and families. At the Mary Crane North site, the teachers were intentional when planning a special event allowing the children to learn through music, food, play and more.

Ms. Tierra Thompson is a parent at the Lake & Pulaski site. Her son, Jasmin, is in one of our 3-5 year old classrooms. When Jasmin was in our toddler classroom, Ms. Thompson faced many challenges with getting him to school. His attendance was very poor. When he did attend school, he had a very difficult time adjusting to the classroom.
