April is Month of the Young Child

 In Early Childhood Education

The Month of the Young Child is an opportunity for us to celebrate young children and the caregivers who lay the foundation for their future success. It’s a time to turn our attention to the many people, places and programs that support the healthy development of our next generation. The month is filled with free family-friendly activities throughout Windham County, VT. But the festivities aren’t only about fun, they’re also about learning! We now know that about 90% of the brain is developed by age 5. That means that all activities young children engage in – from mundane daily routines like brushing their teeth, to exciting adventures like watching a live puppet performance – can have a lasting impact on their growth.
