Early Years Are Learning Years

Childcare centers in Learning Care Group's brand portfolio will celebrate Week of the Young Child in exciting ways; from special parent breakfasts and outdoor art galleries, to kite flying and parades.

Week of the Young Child is held each year 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.

The National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), the world's largest early childhood education association, sponsors the celebration. Learning Care Group Inc., joins NAEYC through its brands; Childtime, Tutor Time, La Petite Academy, Montessori Unlimited and The Children's Courtyard across the country marking this important week with classroom activities, programs and special events.

In addition to Learning Care Group's celebration of young children during this important week, you can join Dr. Heather Wittenberg, our expert blogger and accredited child psychologist, on our website for daily educational blog posts and interactive webisodes that address ways to help meet the developmental needs of our youngest generation.

On Thursday, April 14th from 4:30 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. Learning Care Group, Inc. will host Open House events at Childtime, Tutor Time, La Petite Academy and The Children's Courtyard. All families who attend the event can register to win a year of free tuition (restrictions apply). Visit our website for a school near you.
