Young children here in the Gunnison Valley deserve the best that we can give them.
Week of the Young Child, held April 11-17, is a time to recognize the needs of young children, and thank the adults involved in their education and care. Parents, teachers, caregivers and other adults play important roles in the lives of young children, and Week of the Young Child celebrates their efforts.
We can show our support for early learning in our community by promoting early literacy programs, thanking teachers who care for our children, and working to ensure that our public policies support early learning for all young children.
Week of the Young Child is a time to remind us that early years are learning years. Look for little people cut-outs in business windows decorated by the young children of our Valley. This art project is to celebrate the Week of the Young Child. Also, view children’s art from April 11 to April 17 at Gunnison and Crested Butte libraries.
