Week of the Young Child

April 13 - 17 is Week of the Young Child! This means celebrating our young children, Birth to age 8!

The Week of the Young Child is an annual celebration hosted by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) celebrating early learning, young children, their teachers and families.

Even though we can't physically be with our students in our classrooms, let's plan a way to virtually connect with them and their families!

These are designated themes for the week! Share via social media: @CanutilloISD @love2teachpk2 #WOYC20 --don't forget to also tag your campus!

  • Learn a new song! Play your favorite song and dance together!
