Decorah area schools celebrate Week of the Young Child

The Week of the Young Child occurs nationally from April 6-12 to recognize the needs of young children and their families while advocating for and celebrating early learning and early childhood education.

“The Decorah community is extremely fortunate to have six collaborative preschool centers who provide high quality four-year-old preschool programming, at no cost, through Statewide Iowa Quality Preschool Program funding — and a Head Start Preschool Program licensed by the Department of Human Services,” said a press release from the Decorah Community School District. “These programs provide a foundation for lifelong learning across all development areas, including literacy, math, science, social emotional and fine and gross motor development while also inspiring creativity, imagination, perseverance and kindness.”
