April 18 through 24, is the Week of the Young Child. This year's theme is "Early Years are Learning Years – Make Them Count."
Dr. Ruby Simmonds, acting commissioner of education, cautions parents and guardians to allow children to enjoy the few years of being one.
Dr. Simmonds also asks us to look after the youngest members among us who may be more vulnerable and dependent on those of us who are entrusted with providing their needs.

Unlike many news organizations, we haven't put up a paywall - we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. Our sites are more popular than ever, but advertising revenues are falling - so you can see why we could use your help. Our independent journalism costs time, money and hard work to keep you informed, but we do it because we believe that it matters. If everybody who appreciates our reporting efforts were to help fund it for as little as $1, our future would be much more secure. Thanks in advance for your support!
