Trying Together Offering MOYC Opportunities

Trying Together is offering families, community members, and child care providers a number of opportunities to celebrate Month of the Young Child.


Trying Together is offering child care programs in Allegheny County the opportunity to receive Month of the Young Child (MOYC) materials. Programs may request a mailed box of materials related to Month of the Young Child including:

  • Posters to display at their program location or to give to local businesses to promote the importance of child care in the community
  • Buttons for staff and families to wear during the month of April
  • Printed materials and resources from Trying Together and ELRC Region 5
  • A copy of this year’s PA One Book, “Mel Fell” by Corey R. Tabor

Materials will be shipped by the end of March, and are available on a first-come, first-served basis while supplies last.

Request your MOYC box.

About Month of the Young Child

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 (MOYC).

In April 2023, we will offer opportunities to elevate and celebrate early childhood by providing resources, hosting, co-hosting, and participating in child and caregiver -focused events, and working with early learning programs to share MOYC materials and experiences.
