Week of the Young Child: Artsy Thursday

week of the young child

Every year, the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) hosts Week of the Young Child. This year, the celebration will occur from April 2nd through April 8th. Members of the Early Learning Team at the Department of Education plan to share 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 will focus on NAEYC’s theme of the day. Today is Artsy Thursday!

Today’s video highlighting music in early childhood settings can be found here:

The resources linked within the video are below:

You can find the daily videos and resources posted on our Early Childhood Professional Learning and Resources page 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 Family Friday.

Any questions regarding the Week of the Young Child can be directed to our Early Childhood Specialist, Nicole.Madore@maine.gov.
