Month of the Young Child®
Celebrating Our Youngest Learners!

Each April, Michigan celebrates Month of the Young Child® (MOYC®).

This is a time when communities and individuals recognize the needs and rights
of young children and their families.

Since 1971, one week in April has been celebrated nationally as Week of the Young Child. In 1985, Michigan expanded the celebration to the entire month of April, with each week having a specific focus.

Michigan Association for the Education of Young Children (MiAEYC) coordinates the campaign with support from local and state organizations, businesses and public agencies.
