TO THE EDITOR:

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.

Week of the Young Child is a time to remind us that “early years are learning years.” ...
