Sheridan Mayor Roger Miller stopped by the First Light Early Education Center Monday morning to proclaim this week as “Week of the Young Child” in Sheridan. Sheridan Media’s Ron Richter has the details.

The proclamation is part of the annual national celebration by the National Association for the Education of Young Children. First Light Executive Director Maureen Metcalf says the week is a chance to focus on the importance of early childhood development.

Metcalf says that something new this year is the Children and Families Community Resource Event that they will be hosting from 4 to 7 pm Thursday in the First Light parking lots.

Metcalf said that if the weather is bad, they will relocate what they can inside the early education center.
