Honoring our Teachers

This week, Wu Yee Children’s Services is celebrating Teacher Appreciation Week (May 6 - 10th).  We honor all the teachers at Wu Yee for changing the lives of hundreds of children every day. Their hard work and creativity generate a positive impact extending far beyond the boundaries of the classroom.

Early care and education are critical - 90% of a child's brain develops by age 5. At birth, the average baby's brain is about a quarter of the size of the average adult brain. Incredibly, it doubles in size in the first year. A  child’s brain keeps growing to about 80% of adult size by age 3 and 90% – nearly full grown – by age 5. Teachers play a critical role in our children’s lives, inspiring a lifelong love of learning and discovery, and making a difference in their well-being and long-term success.

We are extremely thankful to all the teachers at Wu Yee for lifting up our littlest ones and showing them a world of diversity, curiosity, and play.  YOU make Wu Yee great!
