What Happens During Week of the Young Child?

During Week of the Young Child, each day has a specific theme which allows us to explore a variety of play and learning activities together. These themes are:

  • Music Monday – Early literacy skills and language are developed through music.
  • Tasty Tuesday – Children learn math, science, and so much more through cooking.
  • Work Together Wednesday – Social skills are fostered through project and group work.
  • Artsy Thursday – Creativity and imagination are expressed through art mediums.
  • Family Friday – Families and children are why we do this important work.

We want to thank our teachers and entire school community for ensuring that fun, enriched activities kept children captivated and curious all week long! And a special thank you to our families for joining in on the fun.

Why Week of the Young Child is Important:

Here are a few more reasons that Week of the Young Child is so important:

  • Raises awareness around the importance of early childhood education.
  • Recognizes our early childhood educators and professionals and honors their vital role in our society.
  • Fosters a sense of community between schools, teachers, and families. During this week especially, we invite families into our schools to participate and celebrate with us!
  • Highlights the importance of PLAY! We know that children develop in all areas through play. This week gives families the chance to experience firsthand the importance of our play-based education at Kinderberry Hill.
