CARE for Children Rainbow Corner Preschool is celebrating its young learners during The Week of the Young Child this week.

The week is highlighted by fun, themed days, that reinforce the curriculum and PA Early Learning Standards, with hands-on, collaborative activities encouraging movement and healthy lifestyles through music, food, and art. 

Musical guest and guitarist Jim Ronan visited the preschool on “Music Monday;” students enjoyed made-to-order tacos for snack on “Tasty Tuesday;” team activities, including a game of giant Jenga, were the highlight on “Work Together Wednesday;” and the preschoolers created a variety of art projects using different materials on “Artsy Thursday.”  “Fun Friday” will round out the themed days for the week.

The Week of the Young Child, an annual celebration sponsored by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), focuses public attention on the needs of young children and their families and recognizes the early childhood programs and services that meet those needs. 

Rainbow Corner Preschool is part of CARE for Children.  For more information on Rainbow Corner or CARE for Children, visit
