Evansville’s Week of the Young Child event will be celebrated April 7-11th.
We are one of the few communities in southern Wisconsin that celebrates this special week. AWARE is working with local daycare providers, the school, Exchange Family Resource Center, and Eager Free Public Library to coordinate the event.

As the special week draws closer, you will see artwork displayed in various businesses, showcasing the creativity of Evansville’s youngest artists.

Weather permitting (i.e. NO snowstorms), we will hold our annual parade on Tuesday, April 8th at 9:30AM with Shelly Bisch serving as our Grand Marshal. Shelly has done so much for the children of Evansville.

Eager Free Library will provide special activities during craft and story time that relate to Week of the Young Child.

The highpoint of the week will be the fantastic family night celebration, Friday, April 11th from 5:30 to 7:30PM. The FREE event will be held at the Levi Leonard Elementary field house and is a great way for families to learn about the many opportunities in the Evansville community.

Many local organizations and businesses will be on hand to provide hands-on fun, activities and special prizes for the kids. If you are an organization or business who would like to participate, please contact AWARE at 882-9900 soon so that we can include you in our promotions and add you to our floorplan!

More than 800 people attend this celebration each year. The kids truly enjoy seeing the baby pigs, chickens, rabbits, playing a variety of games, and doing a sing-a-long with Steve Hoffenberg, one of our talented kindergarten teachers here in Evansville. Parents enjoy the convenience of a one stop resource where they can learn about and in some instances, sign up for recreational activities, scouting, 4-H, free eye-testing, and more! It is also a great way for parents to learn about local businesses, especially the many fine childcare centers here in Evansville

Low-income households finding it more and more difficult to keep up with their basic household expenses are encouraged to contact Energy Assistance to learn if they are eligible for help with their heating bills. Their number is 363-9200.

Families with school-aged children are encouraged to contact AWARE to enroll in the Snackpacker Backpack program. Through this program we send kid-friendly foods in backpacks directly home from school.

If you hesitate to sign up for this program because you prefer the school did not know your financial situation, please contact me directly at 882-9900 and I will try to work with you to find another way for you to participate in the program. Please know I totally understand and respect your desire to protect your family’s privacy.
