If you have a little one at home and can take an extended lunch hour we hope you’ll join us!  

 

SCHOLASTIC BOOKS 

Order family books through Scholastic Books! Scholastic Book orders can now be delivered to your home. Each order helps Little Wonders earn free books and teaching materials. However, there is never any obligation to order. Simply go to www.Scholastic.com/bookclubs and use Activation Code GKC39 to have your order credited to Little Wonders.

 

INTERESTED IN KNOWING MORE ABOUT PRESCHOOL CONSIDERATIONS? 

Typically Teacher Mireille shares information about Hows, Whens and Wheres of Choosing a Preschool in a live presentation at Little Wonders. Due to the pandemic we have not had any optional night classes, but wanted to check on interest. She is happy to send out info and/or present a zoom conversation on this topic if there is interest. Please email director@littlonders.org if you are interested. Many preschools are enrolling now and in the next month for Fall Session.  

 

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 director@littlewonders.org to set up an appointment. She is available most weekdays and evenings and occasional weekends, when needed, either by phone or zoom. If you’ve had your fill of phone and computer, Mireille is willing to meet you for a socially distanced walk and talk!  Please do reach out.

CSUEB SPEECH PATHOLOGIST SEEKING STUDY PARTICIPANTS

A local speech pathologist who has worked with Little Wonders in the past is seeking families interested in participating in an online study of language development. If you are interested in participating in this research study, please read this message from Dr. Katrina Nicholas to learn more:

We are currently recruiting toddlers ages 27-32 months from Mandarin-speaking and English-speaking homes for an online study of language development. The kids will participate in two experimental sessions over Zoom lasting 20-30 minutes each. There is also a language background questionnaire and a vocabulary assessment for the parents to complete. Families will get a $20 Amazon gift card after completing the study. Please contact Dr. Katrina Nicholas at CSUEBmultilinglab@gmail.com if you are interested in participating.
