Midland Park celebrates Week of the Young Child

The Week of the Young Child™ is an annual celebration hosted by the National Association for the Education of Young Children to celebrate early learning, young children, their teachers, and families. This year’s celebration marked the 50th anniversary.


Schools across Charleston County School District (CCSD) hosted activities to inspire, encourage, and educate children and their parents in a variety of methods. This year’s theme was Step It Up.
