tips to visit

Join us for a fun-filled week celebrating early learning, young children, their teachers, families and communities! An annual celebration by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), help spread the word about the importance of high-quality early learning, and the critical role early childhood educators play in a child’s development and learning. #woyc20 

Purpose Behind the Play: 

April 14th – 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! Join us to create your own recipe! 

Grown-up Tip: It’s all about cooking together and connecting math with literacy skills and science while introducing ways to incorporate healthy habits into children’s lifestyles.  

April 15th – Work Together Wednesday > When children build together, they experience teamwork and develop their social and early literacy skills. Join us in the construction area to build a structure together! 

April 16th – Artsy Thursday > Think, problem solve, create! 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! 

April 17th – Family Friday > Parents and families are the children’s first teachers. Family Friday focuses on engaging and celebrating families as the heart of supporting our youngest learners! 

All events programming will be posted online!
