“With all that the children had to endure over the past year, as we battled the COVID pandemic, it was clear they have been true superheroes,” said Theresa Joslin, executive director of Mercy Cares For Kids. “They enjoyed dressing up like the superheroes we know they all are, and we loved celebrating their strength and resilience!”

The Week of the Young Child is an annual celebration sponsored by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), the world’s largest early childhood education association, with nearly 80,000 members and a network of over 300 local, state, and regional affiliates. The week is designed to raise awareness of the needs of young children and to recognize the early childhood programs and services that meet those needs.
