On Saturday, April 6, 2019, the Junior League of Kane & DuPage Counties (JLKD) is proud to partner with an education initiative of Fox Valley United Way, SPARK (Strong, Prepared and Ready for Kindergarten), which connects underserved Aurora, Illinois, families with early childhood education and childcare opportunities that prepare young children for success in school and life.

JLKD will join SPARK to celebrate the Week of the Young Child (WOYC). Children, parents, grandparents, caregivers, teachers and community leaders are invited to this free event, featuring entertainment, children’s activities, resources for parents and more!

As part of this important initiative, JLKD will be hosting a Kids in the Kitchen station focused on the importance of healthy eating and living habits while celebrating the daily themes of WOYC: Music Monday, Tasty Tuesday, Work Together Wednesday, Artsy Thursday, and Family Friday. Children will have the opportunity to prepare and enjoy a tasty nutritious snack while engaging in educational play and activities.

Join JLKD on Saturday, April 6, 2019 from 10:00 AM – 1:00 PM at Santori Library, 101 S. River St, Aurora, IL. We look forward to seeing you there!
