Child Care Centre marks Week of the Child

The Niagara College Child Care Centre will mark the “Week of the Child” this week with special activities.

Week of the Child originated following the International Year of the Child, which was proclaimed by the United Nations in 1979. The Association of Early Childhood Educators, Ontario (AECEO), designed the week as a time for communities to focus on the needs, rights and interests of children and to heighten public awareness of the value of quality Early Childhood Education.

To mark Week of the Child, the Child Care Centre will accept donations for a food  drive all week; hold its annual Teddy Bear Parade today at 10 a.m. at the Welland Campus, and hold a special safety presentation for the children on Wednesday.
