Week of the Young Child 2022

April 5, 2022

Oregon Governor Kate Brown issued a statewide proclamation to recognize the 51st Week of the Young Child®, encouraging Oregonians to support children and the adults who love, care for, and educate them. The Week of the Young Child® is an annual celebration sponsored by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC).

As stated in the proclamation by Brown, “The essential, yet chronically undercompensated child care sector has sacrificed and struggled to serve families since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, and public policies and public investments that support children in high-quality, culturally responsive early learning and child care are vital to all Oregonians.”

NAEYC provides resources and ideas for enjoying a fun-filled week.
