The Week of the Young Child™ is an annual celebration hosted by NAEYC to spotlight early learning, young children, their teachers, families, and communities.
Music Monday- When children sing, dance, and listen to music, they develop their language and early literacy skills while being active and encouraging movement.
Tasty Tuesday- On April 9th, we will focus on healthy eating and fitness at home and school with Tasty Tuesday! This fun, food-themed day is about more than just cheese and crackers. Cooking together connects math with literacy skills, science, and more.
Work Together Wednesday- When children build together they explore math and science concepts and develop their social and early literacy skills. Children can use any building material—from a fort of branches on the playground to a block city in the classroom, or a hideaway made from couch pillows at home.
Artsy Thursday- Children develop creativity, social skills and fine motor skills with open-ended art projects where they can make choices, use their imaginations, and create with their hands. On Artsy Thursday celebrate the joy and learning children experience when engaged in creative art making. Use any materials—from crayons to paint, clay to crafts!
Family Friday- Engaging and celebrating families is at the heart of supporting our youngest learners. We invite our families to join us during their child's center time on Friday, April 12th.
