The Week of the Young Child™
The Week of the Young Child™ is an annual celebration sponsored by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). The purpose of the Week of the Young Child™ is to focus public attention on the needs of young children and their families and to recognize the early childhood programs and services that meet those needs. The 2013 Week of the Young Child™ is April 14-20 and the theme is Early Years Are Learning Years. The preschool will be celebrating WOYC with a variety of events including an Art Walk showcasing work done by the children of PPP. Other events planned throughout the week are:
- Monday, 4/15 and Tuesday, 4/16 the Scottsdale Fire Dept. will visit with their fire truck and talk to the classes about fire safety.
- Wednesday, 4/17 we'll have a picnic on the playground at 11:00am while being entertained by the Singing Cowboy and his horse Dusty.
- Thursday, 4/18 we'll have The Great AZ Puppet Theater here performing a puppet show, "Old MacDonald".
