All around the Hoosier state, Month of the Young Child activities are organized and promoted by members of the Indiana Association for the Education of Young Children, Inc. (Indiana AEYC). As the state affiliate of the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), Indiana AEYC has 15 chapters with more than 2,000 members who are working to improve the lives of young children and those who care for and educate them.
NAEYC proclaims Week of the Young Child™, which focuses public attention on the needs of young children and their families and recognizes the early childhood programs and services that meet those needs. Week of the Young Child is a time to plan how we, as citizens of a community, a state, and a nation, will better meet the needs of all young children and their families. Week of the Young Child serves as a time to reaffirm our commitment, that every child experience the type of early environment that promotes learning. Across all environments, including at home, in childcare, in school, and the community.
