As part of the celebration for “The Week of the Young Child”, Ohio University-Chillicothe (OU-C) has a full schedule of events this week for preschool students who attend the Early Childhood Center (ECC), including the integrated classes run by the Pioneer Center.
The Week of the Young Child was established in 1971 to focus public attention on the needs of young children and their families, and to recognize that the early childhood years are important in the foundation for children’s success in school and later life.
There will be fun activities that run all week at OU-C’s ECEC, including a book fair. Laura Wetterson a librarian from the Chillicothe Public Library came to kick off the week by reading to the children this morning. The preschoolers were then treated to a special music and movement event by the Pioneer Center’s Music Therapy Department.
