Head Start of Eastern Orange County to celebrate 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) celebrating early learning, young children, their teachers and families. Each day of the week, there is a new theme for the children to explore. Our celebration begins the week of April 8th to April 12th, 2019 with our event times being 10:00 a.m. for our morning session & full day classrooms, and 2:00 p.m. for our afternoon session. Our annual kick off will be on Monday celebrating with our Head Start colors, red and blue. We will also have guest speakers (TBD), and a special walk around the block. On Tuesday, we will have crazy hair or hat day, and a guest D.J. will entertain with a dance party for the children. She will get us moving and shaking as she spins the tunes, and each classroom performs and shares a song/dance. Wacky Wednesday is up next, with each classroom switching around for a new experience. Thursday will be our cultural day with some special surprises. The children will see new and exciting musical interpretations. Our week ends with a fun, pajama party for everyone! We invite our parents to join us in their p.j.’s for a family day. If you have a child in our program, please look out for the flyers and reminders coming home. If you have a child between the ages of 3 and 5 and think you may qualify for Head Start, feel free to come by and see us in action!!
