Every year, the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) hosts Week of the Young Child. This year’s celebration is happening between April 2nd through April 8th. Members of the Early Learning Team at the Department of Education are sharing a video each day highlighting early childhood educators across Maine enhancing high-quality experiences for young children ages birth through eight. Each day’s video is focusing on NAEYC’s theme of the day. Today is Tasty Tuesday!
Today’s video highlighting health and nutrition in early childhood settings can be found here:

Thank you to those who have contributed to the videos and photos. We enjoy highlighting your work and sharing your commitment to young children with our colleagues throughout Maine.
Throughout the week, be sure to share additional photos and ideas using #WOYC2022 and #MEWOYC2022. Tomorrow, we’ll share another video for Work Together Wednesday.
