Week of the Young Child 2018

You are here

Be part of the movement - you are invited to introduce a new friend (book) to the preschool students of Bridgeport!

Join 100 volunteers as we celebrate Week of the Young Child (WOYC) April 17-21.

On Wednesday, April 18th at 9:30 & 10am, we will honor young children and their love of learning across the Bridgeport area by reading them a story, sharing a laugh and learning together.

This year's book is Sam the Most Scaredy-Cat Kid in the Whole World by Mo Williams, and each classroom will get to keep the book to be enjoyed again and again.

If you would like to participate, please respond by Tuesday, April 3rd using the online registration form and let us know if you have a location preference (listed below). We will do our best to match you with your first choice, but some programs only have 1 or 2 classrooms. If you have not preference that's great too!

Once we hear back from everyone we will confirm your location and provide additional information.

If you have any questions, please contact Cathy DeCesare at cdecesare@unitedwaycfc.org or 203-339-6309 or Dana Freeman at dfreeman@unitedwaycfc.org or 203-339-6347.
