Early Childhood and Childhood Studies students will plan and carry out activities for children and families in the Plymouth area during April 24-28, 2017, as part of the nationwide celebration of the Week of the Young Child. The Week of the Young Child is a national event planned through the National Association for the Education of Young Children. Each of the five days of the Week of the Young Child focuses on a specific theme (see https://www.naeyc.org/woyc).
The Week of the Young Child is intended to raise awareness of the importance of working together as a community to provide children with opportunities and resources to promote their healthy development and learning. The students will collaborate with Plymouth-area programs such as the Center for Young Children and Families, the Whole Village Family Resource Center, the A+ Afterschool Program at Plymouth Elementary, Pease Public Library, and Plymouth Area Head Start, to develop and provide activities for children focused on: music and the arts, nutrition and physical activity, working and building together, problem-solving and creativity, and sharing family stories.
