Celebrate the Week of the Young Child, April 10th-18th
Celebrate the Week of the Young Child
April 10th-18th, 2010 in Northampton
Northampton joins hundreds of local organizations around the country that will celebrate the Week of the Young Child, which honors the more than 35 million children from birth through age eight in America, and the families, teachers and other adults who help children make the most of the opportunities of their early years.
The Week of the Young Child is a chance to celebrate the learning opportunities of young children, and to recognize the responsibilities we share for helping them make the most of the early years. Our local celebration of the Week of the Young Child is designed to build broader support for early childhood programs that nurture young children’s early learning and growth.
Northampton will celebrate “The Week of the Young Child” from April 10th-18th, 2010, with the twentieth annual Children’s Art Exhibit and a free Children’s Festival. The events are sponsored by the Northampton Community Partnerships for Children (CPC), with participation from early care and education providers, the Northampton Public Schools, the Northampton Parents Center, and family support agencies.
Over 30 local businesses in downtown Northampton and Florence will display artwork by children who attend local preschools, childcare centers and the Northampton Public Schools. The children and their teachers are very proud of their work — please take the time to check it out! The Art Exhibit will be on display through April 18th.
The Children’s festival is on Saturday, April 10 at the Jackson Street School in Northampton from 10:00 AM – noon. There will be lots of great, free activities for young children – games, climbing, tunnels, crafts, stories, and more! Also, we will have a fire engine and school bus to visit! And there is nothing to spend money on! Local agencies serving families will also have information available.
