April is Month of the Young Child
- Adria, age 4, Horizon Early Learning
Join us to celebrate young children and caregivers with free family-friendly activities throughout Windham County, Vermont!
It’s a time to turn our attention to the many people, places, and programs that support the healthy development of our next generation by laying the foundation for their success.
The festivities aren’t only about fun, they’re also about learning! We know that about 90% of the brain is developed by age 5 and the first 1,000 days (3 years) are a window of opportunity to invest in for the future. That means that all activities young children engage in – from simple routines to exciting adventures like watching a live puppet performance – can have a lasting impact on their growth and resilience.
There will be singing and dancing, story time and art making, nature hikes and new this year, an opportunity to meet with a financial advisor!
