Week honors kids, those who support them

Young children in the Sauk Valley area deserve the best that we can give them. 

Open Sesame Children’s Learning Centers invites the Sauk Valley to come together for children during the Week of the Young Child, April 7-11.

As part of the national Week of the Young Child celebrated across the country, Open Sesame and other child care and Head Start programs, preschools, and elementary schools will honor young children and all those who make a difference in children’s lives. 

All young children need and deserve high-quality early learning experiences that will prepare them for life. Week of the Young Child is a time for the Sauk Valley to recognize that early years are learning years for all young children. 

Young children and their families depend on high-quality education and care, which help children get a great start and bring lasting benefits to the Sauk Valley.

You can show 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.

Young children are the future of our communities. 

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

Note to readers: Lori Reubin is the executive director of Open Sesame Children’s Learning Centers.
