Week of the Young Child 2017

Each year, a week is dedicated to young children, their learning, their teachers and families called the Week of the Young Child. The Week of the Young Child is sponsored by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC).

Momentum Early Learning participates each year which includes fun dress up/theme days! The teachers then plan their group lessons around the theme of the day and this year is no different. This year, Week of the Young Child takes place April 24-28.

Below is a list of dress up/theme days for this years celebration at each campus:

Momentum Early Learning-Sussex Campus sets up Giving Tree

20161201_164912Each year our Sussex Campus, partners with Sussex Outreach Services to sponsor local families that are experiencing financial hardships to help make their holiday special.

Sussex Outreach Services is the social ministry arm of the Cooperating Churches of Sussex and serves about 400 families a year. Sussex Outreach Services serves families and individuals in the Hamilton School District which includes Sussex, the Town of Lisbon, Lannon and parts of Merton, Butler and Menomonee Falls.

Momentum Early Learning’s Sussex Campus is supporting two of those 400 families this year. The two families that are being supported are single mothers with younger children, working multiple jobs. These families are looking for some household items, a few small gifts for themselves and gifts for their children so they can experience the magic of the holiday.

Our ‘Giving Tree,’ located in the vestibule, has both green and red paper ‘ornaments’ on them with gift ideas. We invite our families to choose an ornament (or two) to help Momentum support these families. We ask that gifts are returned, UNWRAPPED with the paper ornaments attached to them no later than Friday, December 16th. Please stop in the office if you have any questions!
