FALL REGISTRATION OPENS WEDNESDAY 6/3

Thank you for your patience as we have been preparing for enrollment for the 2020-2021 school year. There are still a few final adjustments to be made, so we will be opening registration on Wednesday, June 3rd. As of now, we are planning for virtual classes in the fall limited to 12 families per class. Board members, pre-reg job holders and early registrants will get first choice spots so be sure to register early if interested! With so much uncertainty in the world right now, we know how important it is to have some structure in your children’s lives and a community to lean on. We appreciate that you have chosen to make Little Wonders a part of your family. Though we are planning to start the Fall semester with virtual classes, we are hopeful that we will be able to welcome you all back to the in-person atmosphere that many of you already know and love, as soon as it is safe to do so.

 

HELPFUL KIDPOWER ZOOM PRESENTATION

Thanks to all of you who took the time to attend our first ever Kidpower Zoom presentation! Irene, from Kidpower, came on and shared many helpful tips on maintaining safety with our little ones and leading us through the practice of emotional and people safety with our bodies. As one Little Wonders parent said: "I genuinely felt powerful having a physical hand motion to go along with words to deflect and defuse common hurtful actions and words. If I felt this way, no doubt my kids will feel it too!" Some of the resources Irene referenced can be accessed via the links below or at https://www.littlewonders.org/kidpower.

END-OF-YEAR SURVEY 

The board needs your feedback! Little Wonders is the magical place that it is because of all of you, so please tell us what worked well this year and what we could improve upon by taking our End-of-Year Survey. The board will review the information and make recommendations and changes based on your feedback. The survey will take ~10 minutes. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

 

COMING BACK TO LITTLE WONDERS NEXT YEAR? SIGN UP FOR A PRE-REG JOB
More than ever Little Wonders needs our veteran families to step up and assume some leadership roles. Please consider taking on a pre-registration job! Families assigned to a pre-registration job will receive their first choice class for the fall 2020-21 school year.

Pre-registration jobs include some assistants to the Board members, photography coordinator, records team, class liaisons/photographers and a number of others. Check our website for a list of jobs that are pre-reg. If interested, please email jobs@littlewonders.org and let Alyse know which job you’d be interested in. We are happy to connect you with the person currently in that role so you can find out if this is a good fit for you. 

 

COMPLETE YOUR SCHOOL JOB FEEDBACK FORM TODAY
We ask that everyone submit a job completion form (found here); we value your feedback and will use your input to make improvements and changes to our school jobs for the upcoming school year.  Thank you!
