In Honor of Week of the Young Child

Ready, Set, Go! Parent and Child night on April 13! 
Week of the Young Child is April 10-16.

Providing children with quality early childhood experiences is one of the best things we can do as a community to stay strong.  That is why United Way of Greater Duluth Success By 6 celebrates anything in honor of young children, literacy, or reading! 

Sue Schumacher, an early literacy librarian from the Duluth Public Library, will be at the Duluth Area Family YMCA on Wednesday, April 13, 6-7pm, for a fun and exciting story time gathering!  Play time for the children in Kid’s Place will follow while parents stay for a few tips on engaging their young children with reading and early literacy activities! 

Who: United Way of Greater Duluth Success By 6; Duluth Area Family YMCA; Duluth Public Library

Where: Duluth Area Family YMCA meeting room and Kid’s Club

When: Wednesday, April 13, 6-7pm

Explore how books, songs, and literacy-rich play encourage young children to get excited about reading and learning.  Samples of stories, fingerplays, and songs will keep things lively and offer fresh ideas. 

To register call Linsdey Molstad at the Y:  218-722-4745 ext. 119!  Space is limited.

We hope to see you and your children there in support of early childhood!  This event is free and open to the whole community!

Also look for the Young Child insert in the Duluth News Tribune on Sunday, April 17.  It focuses on current issues and local resources for our youngest citizens.
