“Week of the Young Child” was celebrated last week by Wee Care Day Care and West Sioux School District.
The kickoff event took place April 15 at Hawarden Community Center. Mid-Sioux Opportunities Inc., Hawarden Public Library, Hawarden Regional Healthcare and Sioux County Conservation Board were all on hand.
About 100 people attended, said Wee Care Director Jennifer Topete. The “Curious George” character was the main attraction.
“This year we had the kickoff event in place of the balloon release,” said Topete.
Other events at Wee Care were the Pajamas Wearing Day, parents joining their children for breakfast and lunch, a story hour from Hawarden Public Library, and Wear Red, White and Blue Day.
