Celebrate the Young Child this Month and Every Month!

Last month we celebrated the Month of the Young Child.  Everywhere, we focused attention on the needs of young children and their families and recognized the early childhood programs and services that meet those needs. Well, almost everywhere. The White House recently released its FY2018 "skinny" budget. The funding cuts in education are big, and, unlike the past few budgets, early learning is not even mentioned.
