April is the Month of the Young Child
This special month was created to raise awareness of the needs of our youngest children and those who work with them. During the month we will be celebrating our children through many different activities.
- Purple was the color chosen to represent this terrific month. Throughout April we are inviting all of our staff, families and the community to wear purple on Tuesdays to show their support of early childhood education.
- The week of April 1st-5th our attention is drawn to the physical development and achievements of young children. We will be celebrating these achievements on April 4th by creating an obstacle course in the sanctuary for the enjoyment of all the children in our care.
- The week of April 6th-12th our attention is drawn to the social and emotional development and achievements of young children. To celebrate these achievements we will be having a community snack on April 7th in the sanctuary.
- The week of April 13th-19th our attention is drawn to the cognitive development and achievements of young children. To celebrate these achievements the children will be participating in a very special puzzle project.
- The week of April 20th-30th our attention is drawn to the language and literacy development and achievements of young children. Every day of this period we will be having guest readers from the community coming in to share their favorite children’s books with all of our children.
Another way in which we will be working towards providing the right start for every child is by hosting a donation drive for the Pregnancy Helpline in Brighton. Please see the attached form for items that can be donated.
Spring has sprung and Easter has arrived. We are celebrating the resurrection of Jesus with the children on Thursday, April 17th from 9:45am – 12:00pm. The children will be coloring eggs, going on an egg hunt, creating a special Easter craft and making a special snack. We are also very blessed that Pastor Devin will be with us to share a very special Easter message. Parents are welcome to attend this very special event.
