Week of the Young Child 2023

Loving Literacy: A Make & Take Adventure

Date:  April 3, 2023 – 5:00pm-6:15pm OR 6:45pm-8:00pm

Suite 123 First Floor, 1433 Hooper Ave, Toms River

The Ocean Chapter of NJAEYC is partnering with the Children’s  Home Society of NJ for 2 special events to celebrate NAEYC’s Week  of the Young Child:

Join us for an evening of conversation, snacks & creative make-and-take fun as  you rotate between several stations to make some new materials you can use in  your literacy center. Bring a cardboard box (about the size of a copy paper box), a cookie sheet and a good pair of adult scissors, and we will provide the rest of  the materials – even the laminators to make your materials extra durable.  Register for one of the 2 sessions, space is limited to 12 participants per session  to avoid overcrowding, so first come/first served!

Register on NJCCIS to  participate!
