SNHS Child Development Programs Celebrate The Week of the Young Child
Southern NH Services, Inc. Child Development Programs will be celebrating The Week of the Young Child during the month of April. Head Start, Early Head Start and Child Care classrooms will be offering a variety of activities to promote literacy and family engagement. Several centers will be hosting Family Literacy events. Families will also be invited into the classrooms to participate in activities linked to literacy such as ‘Teddy Bear Picnic’. A program wide Read-A-Thon will result in classroom displays linked to ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’. Children will also enjoy special event days such as Friendship Day, Pajama Day, Silly Hat Day, and Backwards Day.
Southern NH Services Child Development Programs have also joined with Prevent Child Abuse NH in partnership with the NH Charitable Trust Fund in recognizing April as Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention month. The ‘Pinwheels for Prevention’ theme will be visible in all of our centers where staff will be creating displays and providing parent resources and positive parenting activities to share the message that child abuse is preventable and we all play a part.
