The Week of the Young Child is an annual celebration to focus public attention on the needs of young children and their families and to recognize the early childhood programs and services that meet those needs.

This year Georgetown County First Steps celebrated Week of the Young Child by providing three days full of “Under the Sea Adventures” to over 140 children in Georgetown County. On Monday, April 7 GCFS held an Under the Sea Party at the Georgetown County School District’s Beck Administration Building, which included performances by Elizabeth Huntsinger of the Georgetown County Library and Tammie Burnette from WellCare, Inc. After the performances, children were treated to a pizza party lunch along with the GCFS Board.

On Tuesday, April 8 the children from the GCSD Family Literacy Program and local child development centers went to Waccamaw Intermediate School to watch the sixth grade do an outstanding job with their production of the “Little Mermaid”. After the performance children were greeted by the characters and had photos taken.

On Wednesday, April 9 children from Georgetown’s 4K CDEPP child development centers enjoyed a free day at Ripley’s Aquarium, where they learned about the different creatures they can find under the sea, as well as enjoyed some playtime with the various attractions.
