Celebrating our youngest learners
Rose State College Celebrates National Week of the Young Child
Rose State College asks the community of RSC to come together for children during the Week of the Young Child April 24-28, 2017. As part of the national Week of the Young Child celebrated across the country, Rose State College is honoring young children and all those who make a difference in children's lives.
Young children and their families depend on high-quality education and care, which help children get a great start and bring lasting benefits to Midwest City, Oklahoma, and the surrounding areas. Week of the Young Child is a time to recognize the importance of early learning and early literacy and to celebrate the teachers and policies that bring early childhood education to young children.
The Family Services and Child Development Program (FSCD) at Rose State College has over 100 majors working to improve professional practice and working conditions in early childhood education and to build public support for high-quality early childhood education programs.
