Celebrating the Week of the Young Child

Gianna Pellegrini (from left), Justin Pierceson and Westyn Widmer enjoy outdoor play time Tuesday morning at the Zearing Child Enrichment Center in Princeton with relays, tossing games and hula hoops as part of the center’s celebration of this week as the “Week of the Young Child.” This year’s focus for the annual celebration has been creativity and play, reading and writing. In addition to the track and field day on Tuesday, other special activities for the week have included Muffins with Mom, Donuts with Dad, wear purple day, crazy hair and crazy hat day, pajama day, a picnic and mismatch day.
