Mayor Sly James, Missouri Senator Jolie Justus and Missouri State Representative Judy Morgan recently toured the Edgar L. and Rheta A. Berkley Child and Family Development Center in recognition of The Week of the Young Child™.
Each guest read to children in several of the classrooms to focus public attention on the children and their families’ needs and to recognize - and model - the early childhood programs and services that meet those needs.
The annual celebration, held the week of April 22-28, was sponsored by the National Association for the Education of Young Children. The theme was Early Years Are Learning Years®.
