Week of the Young Child Celebration 

Join us for Idaho AEYC’s Week of the Young Child Celebration!

The Week of the Young Child is a time to focus on the needs of Idaho's youngest and their families, and to recognize the early childhood programs and services that meet those needs. Our event connects parents with valuable community resources and provides businesses and organizations a unique opportunity to showcase the work they do. Each booth must offer an activity that fits within one of the Week of the Young Child's daily themes – Music Monday, Tasty Tuesday, Work Together Wednesday, Artsy Thursday and Family Friday. Last year, children worked on coloring projects, tried out new gymnastics moves, learned how to cast a fishing line, played musical instruments and much more. We're excited to see what our vendors come up with this year!

Attendees will also enjoy live music and performances on our celebration stage. 

Idaho AEYC and the Idaho Botanical Garden are partnering to host this celebration! The garden will be open for the community to explore during the event.
