Learning years

To the Editor:

Young children in McHenry County deserve the best that we can give them.

Week of the Young Child, April 6-12, is a time to recognize the needs of young children and thank the adults involved in their education and care. Parents, teachers, caregivers, and other adults play important roles in the lives of young children, and Week of the Young Child celebrates their efforts.

We 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.

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