The Month of the Young Child™ is an annual celebration sponsored by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) and was first started in 1971.

This year’s theme for Month of the Young Child™ is Celebrating our Youngest Learners!
April 6 – 10 Focus on Illustrations & Literature
April 13 – 17 Focus on Painting

As a part of the Focus on Painting week, local watercolor painting artist Jane Herzog will be at Pathfinder Kids Kampus to paint with the 3, 4, and 5 year olds on April 15th at 10:00AM.
“Each child in our community deserves high-quality learning experiences which are proven to lay the foundation for success in school and in later life,” said Pathfinder Kids Kampus Administrator, Lisa Mettler. “Month of the Young Child™ is a time to recognize the importance of early learning and development and to celebrate all young children. Today, we know more than ever how important early childhood development is to giving the children of our community a great start.”
