The National Association for Education of Young Children holds an annual celebration of young children, their families, educators, and other caregivers. We use this opportunity to reflect on and recognize the hard work that is parenting and educating young children. While we provide opportunities throughout participating communities to celebrate the Week of the Young Child each year, our main contributions are in the recognition of educators. Each year we recognize educators through parent, family, community, or peer nominations and share the words of support and thanks.

What is the role of the Alliance? We made a commitment to our community to continually seek the proclamations from local mayors, as always we work on behalf of children, their educators, their families, and others who love them.
