HCDE Head Start hosted its first-ever “Beautiful Oops! Art in the Park” celebration at the Baytown Community Center this week. Early Head Start students and their families, local community partners, and Early Head Start staff enjoyed a day of music and movement, storytime, and art activities to stimulate the physical and social-emotional development of Harris County’s youngest learners.
The event coincided with the 2022 Week of the Young Child (WOYC), an annual campaign that celebrates young children and their families with hands-on, collaborative activities encouraging movement and healthy lifestyles through music, food, and art.

Students at HCDE Head Start campuses also participated in fun-filled events and activities with their families that incorporated the Frog Street Press pre-kindergarten curriculum and WOYC’s daily themes. Students sang and danced in talent shows, expressed their creativity in art shows, and engaged in authentic learning moments with parents to build homemade cardboard cars.
