The Calendar widget, used in the DatePicker, is designed to navigate between months, years and etc with transition animation. Adding a HTML Select element that chooses the current year is not suppported out-of-the-box. If you would like to accomplish similar functionality then you will need to place the dropdowns separately and use the Calendar API
to navigate the views.
Note that implementation of such custom functionality falls out of the scope of the entitled support service.
