Smart Start marks Week of Young Child

Week of the Young Child is celebrated across the country to honor young children and all of those who make a difference in childrenís lives.
Young children and their families depend on high-quality education and care, which helps children get a great start and bring lasting benefits. Week of the Young Child is a time to recognize the importance of early learning and early literacy, and to celebrate the teachers and policies that bring early childhood education to young children.
Smart Start Rowan annually celebrates week of the young child to focus attention on the needs of young children and the parents and teachers who care for them. During the Week of the Young Child (April 10-16), Smart Start Rowan will sponsor the ěRead to Meî program. This program will involve board and committee members visiting local childcare facilities throughout Rowan County to read to 4- year-olds. A book will be donated to the childcare facility in honor of the volunteer.
Smart Start Rowan will also collaborate with the office of Dr. Timothy Hennie to bring awareness to the importance of childrenís vision. Dr. Melanie J. Denton, O.D., will provide free, one-time eye and vision assessments to infants ages 0-1 year. To schedule an appointment, please call 704-633-2581.
