What is Maryland Month of the Young Child?

For the second year, Maryland-based arts and early childhood organizations are collaborating to mark April as Maryland Month of the Young Child!

An expansion of the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC)’s Week of the Young Child,™ this month-long event celebrates the importance of early childhood education and underscores the crucial role the arts play in young learners' development. Research shows that the arts are the most natural vehicle for play-based learning, actively engage and inspire children, and promote school readiness.

Celebrate Month of the Young Child with Us!

Throughout April, Arts for Learning and its partner organizations are hosting free and low-cost events for early learners and families. Families and caregivers will find a variety of events for children ages birth to six, including storytelling sessions, art activities, and hands-on art projects.

Check out our calendar below to see how you can celebrate Maryland Month of the Young Child with us! Check back regularly for updates, as events are being added to the calendar weekly.
