First established by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) in 1971, the Week of the Young Child is an opportunity to focus public attention on the needs of young children and their families and to recognize the early childhood programs and services that meet those needs. Over the years, with growing interest and focus, Trying Together designated the entire month of April as the Month of the Young Child. During this month it is a time to plan how we will better meet the needs of all young children, their families, and caregivers. Annual Trying Together Celebration Dinner Save the date!
