The purpose of 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 organization also emphasizes the week as a time to plan how the national community can better meet the needs of all young children and their families.
"Week of the Young child is all about celebrating what it means to be little! It is a sweet week when our whole preschool spends the day together using all of our senses and energy playing, jumping, and exploring exciting things that make being a child so special. We get to use our hands, bodies, and brains to be joyful and praise our Creator for the way we are wonderfully made by Him!
Our verse for the week is Philippians 4:4- "Be full of joy always because you belong to the Lord! Again I say be full of joy!" says Head of Preschool Lauren Overbeek.
With each day of the week themed, students dressed up, enjoyed fun activities, and experienced the true joys of early childhood. A highlight of the week was "Superher Day," when students dressed as their favorite superheros. Perhaps the most animated day of the week was "Messy Day," featuring myriad activities for students where they enjoyed getting messy - mud pies, rainbow soap suds, shaving cream, and slip 'n slide.
The festivities provided unique bonding experiences for the preschool community and inspired the spirit of childhood across the Academy campus.
