York Tech Promotes Early Childhood Development

Posted: Updated:

The National Association for the Education of Young Children is holding their annual Week of the Young Child and York Technical College is participating.

The Early Childhood Development Center, located on York Tech’s campus, is holding special events all week long to promote early childhood education.

“These children are our future,” said Vice President of Academic Student Affairs at York Tech, Carolyn Stewart. “It’s important that as educators we start early because I think the foundation for learning and for the future of our country is in these children.”

The purpose of the week is to promote the needs of young children and meet those needs.

The week consists of soccer clinics, musical performances, train rides, themed days and a family picnic.

“This is our week to say that early childhood education is special, our children are special and what we are doing with our children is special,” said Development Center Director, John Hayes.

There are 20 nursing students from the college and 75 early development students volunteering to make this week possible.
