Participate as a vendor

Is your business or nonprofit related to young children? The Week of the Young Child Celebration is a unique opportunity to showcase the work you do and interact with families. Last year, more than 2,000 children and community members attended! Each booth should offer an activity for children, and we’re happy to help you brainstorm.

Sponsor the event

Idaho AEYC is expanding this celebration in 2019 to serve more parents and young children in the community. Your sponsorship will allow us to continue offering this event for free, increase awareness through marketing, and support our work advocating for high-quality early childhood education. As a sponsor, you will get recognition at the event, in our print materials and on our website and social media.


We’re looking for individuals willing to help out on the day of the event! Volunteer roles include supporting vendors with set-up and activities, welcoming attendees, handing out books, and assisting throughout the Idaho Botanical Garden. It’s a great fit for a local business in search of a volunteer opportunity for its employees. If you are interested in volunteering, please email Allison Maier at amaier@idahoaeyc.org.

The Week of the Young Child™ is an annual, nationwide celebration that focuses public attention on the needs of our youngest children and their families, and recognizes the early childhood programs and services that meet those needs. This year, the Week of the Young Child is April 8 - 12, 2019
