April 8: Music Monday

Through music, children can develop math, language, and literacy skills—all while having fun and being active!

April 9: Tasty Tuesday

Cooking develops many skills, including math and science, while encouraging healthy nutrition and fitness habits at home and in the classroom.

April 10: Work Together Wednesday

When children build together, they explore new concepts and develop their social and early literacy skills.

April 11: Artsy Thursday

Children develop creativity, social, and fine motor skills with open-ended art projects that allow them to make choices and use their imaginations.

April 12: Family Friday

Engaging and celebrating families is at the heart of supporting our youngest learners. Family Friday recognizes that family members are a young child’s first and most important teachers.
