Celebrate Week of the Young Child
April 11-15, 2016

The School City of Hobart, Building Brickies, and Hobart Preschools in conjunction with the City of Hobart are pleased to announce Week of the Young Child April 11-15. This week will focus on our youngest citizens in Hobart. We will offer events that focus on ages prenatal-age 5. We would like to encourage families with young children to participate in as many activities as possible.

Early childhood education is vital to our community. Children need a strong early learning foundation to succeed in school, and go on to succeed in life.

You can make a difference by supporting early literacy, reaching out and working with teachers and parents who help young children get a great start, and supporting policies that provide high-quality early learning opportunities for all young children.

Join us all week long at our FREE family events around Hobart!
