The College of the Canyons Center for Early Childhood Education and the Southern California Valley Association for the Education of Young Children will host the 15th annual “Play Day” on Saturday, April 14, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the COC Honor Grove on the college’s Valencia campus.
Part of the nationally celebrated Week of the Young Child, the event is free and open to the public.
The goal of the College of the Canyons Children’s Play Day is to bring the community together for a day of high quality, developmentally stimulating play experiences for all children, infant to school age, to enjoy.
The event also provides families with young children an opportunity to explore the many valuable resources that are available to them both at the college and in the community.
“Every year, we look forward to this event that allows us to welcome local families to College of the Canyons,” said Wendy Ruiz, event coordinator and faculty member at ECE. “This year’s event will feature a variety of activities that children and their families will enjoy, such as face painting and obstacle courses.”
Approximately 50 local non-profit groups and organizations dedicated to child and family services are expected to participate in this year’s Play Day. Food vendors will also be available at the event.
Attendees are also welcome to bring a picnic lunch and blanket and settle in under the shade for the day’s lineup of free activities.
