Week of the Young Child is a national time to raise awareness about the education of young children.

WHAT: In a collaborative effort to raise awareness and celebrate Week of the Young Child, many local preschools (including Glendale Adventist Medical Campus Children’s Center) are having a "Bubble-Blowing Bonanza" on Wednesday, April 13 at 10 AM. At this time, all of the participating center's children, teachers and administrative staff will go outside and blow bubbles in celebration of the wonder and discovery that occurs during this very special time of life.

Young families depend on high-quality education and care, which helps young children to get a great start, and brings lasting benefits to our community. Week of the Young Child is a time to recognize the importance of early learning and early literacy, and to celebrate young children, and the professionals of early education that are committed to providing excellent programs.

WHY: Week of the Young Child, held this year the week of April 11 - 17, is a national time to raise awareness about the education of young children and in recognition of the professionals that work diligently to provide quality child care programs within local communities. All young children need and deserve high-quality early learning experiences that will prepare them for life.

WHO: The Foothill/Glendale Area Director's Rap is a group of early childhood professional that own and/or operate local high-quality child care centers. This year, several of these centers have come together in conjunction with the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) to raise awareness in the our community that early years are learning years.
