The annual celebration of young children ages birth to 8 years old started in 1971 by the National Association for the Education of Young Children. The NAEYC is celebrating young children, their teachers and families. Visit their website for details.

We want to thank all of Trinity County’s participants — Head Start, Alps View, Lewiston Preschool, Weaverville PNS, Trinity County Office of Education School Readiness Program; Burnt Ranch playgroup, North Lake playgroup, Hayfork, Hayfork2.0, Van Duzen, and all of Human Resourse Network’s Family Childcare Homes.

Music Monday is all about singing, dancing, and learning. Practice clapping and counting to the beat of the music. Tasty Tuesday is a good time to create a healthy snack while you connect math and science with literacy skills. Work together Wednesday is a time to build and explore math and science. Try building a tower with blocks, how many can you stack until it falls?

Artsy Thursday is a day to think, problem solve and create. Open-ended art projects are a great way to use imagination and fine motor skills. Bring art outside, offer chalk and pastels and suggest children create their versions of the day and sky. Family Friday is a time to engage and celebrate families and their lives.

Share pictures and stories about traditions and celebrations. Share your Monday through Friday fun on the Trinity County Office of Education’s  Facebook page, (
