Communities across the state come together to recognize our youngest Idahoans and everyone who makes a difference in their lives. The local Week of the Young Child celebrations are part of a national effort to raise awareness about the unique needs of young learners.
The free event focuses on connecting families with quality community resources, such as summer camps, after-school programs, early literacy information, healthy eating tips, and child care. Each vendor booth offers an activity for young children, such as an art project or a new skill to learn.
The National Association for the Education of Young Children established the Week of the Young Child™ in 1971. It is celebrated annually across the country. You can learn more here.
