Week of the Young Child

APRIL 8-12, 2019 



This is the Week of the Young Child throughout Michigan. Detroit Public TV is proud to work in partnership with a great organization, MiAEYC (Michigan Association for the Education of Young Children), to celebrate all the many individuals across the state who care so much and work so hard for the well-being and success of our youth.

While we designate the date and daily themes, celebrations are organized and coordinated by individual early childhood programs and community organizations providing services to young children and families. Celebrations can be tailored to meet your own needs!

This year NAEYC is asking members, centers, higher ed programs, and everyone else in the early education community to Step It Up (SIU) during WOYC™. We kept the same daily themes, but we challenge YOU to expand them! Spread the word about the importance of high-quality early learning, and the critical role early childhood educators play in a child’s development and learning. 

Children learn so much as they enjoy music, explore food and cooking, build together, create art, and celebrate their families! Get inspired by the activities below and start planning your celebration today!  

Here's some activities you can do each day: 

Music Monday

Tasty Tuesday

Work Together Wednesday

Artsy Thursday

Family Friday
