REGISTRATION FOR SECOND SEMESTER
Our first semester ends just before the holiday break, and we have decided to jump right into the second semester following the New Year on January 4th. Those of you who registered for the full year are good to go! If you registered only for the first semester and would like to continue, please complete the quick registration process here. We hope to see you all back for a fun and informative second semester!
SHOP FIVE LITTLE MONKEYS AND GIVE BACK TO LITTLE WONDERS!
Two more days of our Five Little Monkeys fundraiser! Shop online at Five Little Monkeys toy store between December 1st and December 10th and Little Wonders will receive 15% back! Enter code WONDERS2020 at checkout. Take advantage of free local delivery and free shipping on all orders over $150! Local deliveries will be made in nondescript brown paper bags so as to avoid ruining any surprises. Five Little Monkeys offers free gift wrapping and a unique selection of the best educational toys, games and books for children. This is for online purchases only made through December 1-10.
We would love your input on our end of the semester survey. Your feedback is valuable in shaping the Little Wonders program to meet your needs. Thanks in advance for taking a few minutes to share your thoughts and ideas with us!

COMING SOON: 2021-2022 BOARD RECRUITMENT
We are so grateful for all that our LW families do to make our school run as smoothly as it does. In the new year, we'll be looking for parents who wish to contribute even more to the school by serving on the board. The board meets (virtually) once per month to make decisions and discuss any current issues that need to be resolved. There are a variety of positions to suit many different skills and interests. If you have any questions or would like more information about the board roles, please contact Steph O'Grady at firstname.lastname@example.org.
MIREILLE AVAILABLE FOR FREE PRIVATE CONSULTATION
Please take advantage of this opportunity for free 30 minute consultations with Director Mireille! Consultation topics can range from sibling conflicts, eating, sleeping and discipline issues to problem-solving family concerns like childcare, return to work, and more! She looks forward to connecting with families and easing the load on other staff members. You are welcome to email her at email@example.com to set up an appointment. She is available most weekdays and evenings and occasional weekends, when needed, either by phone or zoom.
FOLLOW, REVIEW, & RATE US ON SOCIAL MEDIA
Please follow us on Facebook and Instagram. We regularly post content that is interesting and relevant for families with infants and toddlers! We’d also love to hear from you on our Facebook page, NextDoor, and Yelp! We have some great 5 star ratings on social media but WE NEED MORE! Please take a moment to write us a review or rate us on Facebook, NextDoor, or Yelp so that other families can see how valuable our school and community is. Spread the word!
