Week of the Young Child Theme Days 

4/16/18 Music Monday - Through music children develop math, language and literacy skills, all while having fun!

4/17/18 Tasty Tuesday - This food themed day is about more than just animal crackers! Through activities like taste tests and cooking together children and teachers engage children in learning about health nutrition and eating habits. It is also a good time to start planning that out door gardening project with the children.

4/18/18 Working Together Wednesday - When children work together they experience teamwork and communication. Working together builds self esteem, social skills as well as language and literacy skills

4/19/18 Artsy Thursday - Children develop creativity, social skills and fine motor skills when adults encourage them to use their small muscles and imaginations to create open-ended expressions and works of art. Design an "Art Gallery" and have an Art Show on Family Friday!

4/20/18 Family Friday - Families are the most important element in a child's life! Encourage families to join your program for the day or plan a special "loved one lunch" Families are the heart of supporting our youngest learners!
