Celebrating the Week of the Young Child with United Way of Greater Atlanta

Each year, children all over the nation are celebrated during the month of April with a special week designated by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) as the “Week of the Young Child” (WOYC).

In celebration of WOYC 2014, United Way of Greater Atlanta is hosting a FREE Professional Development Day on Saturday, April 12, 2014. For registration information, please email events@unitedwayatlanta.org. 

Ideal Early Learning is pleased to participate in this event by featuring a session--“Updating Your Game: Modern Techniques for Engaging ALL Stakeholders” presented by Dr. Bisa from 9:45-10:30 AM. We are also sponsoring a booth in the Exhibit Hall.



WINGS Curriculum will be featured at the Ideal Early Learning booth! Please stop by to visit! You will have opportunities to take a closer look at WINGS 3 classroom products for the duration of the conference.





Dr. Bisa will sign her world-renowned board book, Let’s Potty and children’s music CD, Singing up a Buzz, at our booth from 11:00 AM-1:00 PM. Special pricing will be available in celebration of the Week of the Young Child.

While you are at the Ideal Early Learning booth, be sure to inquire about how you can get a FREE music download to support your preschool lesson plans!

A heartfelt celebration was held in the graduates' honor on Monday, March 24, 2014 at United Way of Greater Atlanta. The graduates' families, friends and colleagues were invited to participate and support!    

One graduate's husband shared, "I have seen a major change in my wife, since she has been in this class. I know they mainly learn about children, but she's made some amazing personal changes. I am so proud of her. Thank you for this opportunity."  


This is yet another example of how United Way of Greater Atlanta puts its nonprofit dollars to work! We are proud to be a partner!
