“Young children and their families depend on high-quality education and care, which help children get a great start and bring lasting benefits to Idaho,” said Idaho AEYC Executive Director Beth Oppenheimer. “Week of the Young Child™ is a time to recognize the importance of early learning and early literacy, and to celebrate the teachers and policies that bring early childhood education to young children.”
