Week of the Young Child

Week of the Young ChildLutheran Social Services is celebrating kids with many special events during the “Week of the Young Child” April 15-19 at Southern Hills Preschool.  The Week of the Young Child celebration has been happening nation wide for over 40 years. Young children and their families depend on high-quality education and care, which help children get a great start, and bring lasting benefits to Sioux Falls. Week of the Young Child is a time to recognize the importance of early learning and early literacy, and to celebrate the teachers and policies that bring early childhood education to young children.  To meet this need for quality care Southern Hills program provides a stimulating learning environment that will help prepare students for kindergarten and instill a love of learning.

 At Southern Hills this year students and families will participate in a wide range of fun activities to celebrate this important week. The excitement starts with career day to highlight the role early childhood plays in starting the education children will need to follow their dreams. Children will dress in clothes related to “who they want to be when they grow up.” Guest readers will join children throughout their week to show them how important reading is. Other fun activities will fill the week and the festivities will come to a close with a parade filled with smiles on Friday. We invite the community to join in the fun!
