FOCUS is proud to have sponsored the York Area Association for the Education of Young Children’s (YAAEYC) Week of the Young Child Recognition Banquet. Approximately 250 early childhood supporters were in attendance to celebrate the impact of high quality early childhood education on the children and families in York and Adams counties.
The Week of the Young Child focuses public attention on the needs of young children and their families. The event also recognizes the early childhood education programs and services that meet those needs. This year parents nominated 71 teachers for the Outstanding Provider Award which recognizes an individual teacher’s hard work and dedication to their child. FOCUS also awarded 3 teachers awards after a competitive grant process to implement special programs within their classroom or center.
